Sales of Run BASIC have been pretty strong since we launched it on Jan 5. It's been really encouraging to see our users post about their experiences. People are building a lot of really neat things with it.
One thing that people seem interested in doing with Run BASIC is to use it as a frontend interface to various systems like home automation, machine control, monitoring and such. So requests for RS-232 serial port access, hardware port I/O and even USB devices are a hot topic. See this thread.
Hobbyists and people who take it upon themselves to automate their own work without the help of IT experts have traditionally used BASIC, and we intend to make Run BASIC work for them.
