XBLite is a concise, simple, powerful, Windows programming language which combines the speed of C with the ease of a BASIC syntax. The XBLite compiler is free, open-source, and published under GPL and LGPL licenses.

"XBLite is an easy-to-use, extremely flexible and powerful programming language, appropriate for both the quick utility and the major project. Of all the Open Source programming languages, none come close to XBLite."
"I use the XBLite compiler due to its similarities to C, but without the complications of memory management. It is simple to learn, yet ideally suited for beginners, students, and programming  professionals alike."
"I originally downloaded XBLite because it was free and I've been using XBLite for all my major projects ever since. What I really like about XBLite is the comprehensive CHM help file and demo programs. What other free BASIC compiler has a help file with over 400 topics and over 200 demo programs."
