My top 5:

  • FreeBASIC - my favorite, the one I use the most
  • QB64 - 2nd most favorite, still use a good bit
  • VBScript - have to support it at work
  • Yabasic - not so much anymore
  • BCX - not so much anymore.  Not sure if it is still supported

Others I've used, and still use on occasion, when I see something interesting written in them or when I'm testing something:

  • Just Basic
  • BaCon
  • BBC BASIC for SDL
  • SmallBasic (not the MS one)
  • Oxygen Basic
  • Chipmunk BASIC
  • SpecBasic
  • ScriptBasic
