Who uses Business Basic?

“Some of the most popular small business accounting systems are written in Business Basic, and many Business Basic application OEM’soffer their products through dealer networks around the world. The vast majority of Business Basic users don’t even know the software running on their machines is written in Business Basic.

Although there are no hard figures available, it has been estimated that more than 2,000,000 computer systems around the world presently use Business Basic applications, often in conjunction with other applications. The vast majority of these installations are PCs, but minicomputers continue to be widely used, and the upper-end PCs, such as Intel’s 486 and Pentium systems and Motorola’s 68040 series, are being used to replace older minicomputers, often with greater performance.”
