Digg recently ran a story on this (http://www.roesler-ac.de/wolfram/hello.htm) article, Hello World in 366 languages. Included in the list is SPIN. I guess the Propeller is becoming more mainstream than I thought.

I have a duel boot of Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista. Vista, because it came with the PC, Ubuntu because I like software that works.

I saw a list of 350+ hello world programs, and it included Spin and PBASIC too. It is wonderful to see that on Digg! http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smilewinkgrin.gif

That code was unduly verbose. Makes spin look like a bloated language when it's not. I wonder why the author chose to display a count than just displaying "Hello World" like the other languages?
