My impression of BASICstamp's BASIC is that it's damn close to assembly
language. The use of the name "BASIC" is more marketing than anything
else. It's there to attract a generation of artists who are learning how
to code and solder in a fit of DYI-ness and are the right age to have
tried BASIC as a kid in a way that makes them nostalgic about it.

Is there even a Linux interface for uploading to the BASICstamp ? I think
I recall it's Windows-only.
