The history of freeBASIC

On the home page of it explains how FB started.

My shorts answer to the question asked why it seems to be a mixture of other languages is:

FreeBASIC was a continuation of QB (Quick Basic) over the years it ha been an effort to add more features to the language most of which is way beyond the capabilities of QB. So new commands and syntax was added to FB, influenced by the FB community over the years. The community had preferences, things they liked in other languages like C. So some of those preferences eventually found their way into FB.
