The programming language BASIC, on which MSX BASIC is based, is becoming 40 this may. In 1964 BASIC was developed by John Kemeny en Thomas Kurtz at the Darthmoud College in New Hampshire. The Dutch newssite NU.nl knows MSX BASIC is one of the reasons why MSX is so amazingly cool: they've put up some screenshots of MSXPLAYer running MSX BASIC to support the article! Thanks to Jan Will for bringing this to our attention. Update: TFH also noticed it already, you can discuss this article in this forumpost
