Have a compiler where you can either use PBasic or PIC assembler.
Exactly like the SX.Assembler or SX/B.

It would be nice for Parallax to continue to support and develop curricula for the BS-2. It is easy to learn, easy to design with, and is powerful without being overly complex. Lets say that someone was designing a small cubesat to do one or two things in orbit. Maybe measure Gamma flux of a given energy. Would you want to use a very complex microprocessor that took thousands of lines of code, or a micro- controller that took twenty five lines of code to do the same thing? Just by its simplicity, the micro-controller would be more reliable. When I say simple, I mean for example, take measurement, record time of measurement, record to storage, repeat, when command received, dump measurement to transmitter. That is it. Of course neither a regular BS-2 or Propeller could be used as they are not radiation hardened. This is just a "what if". But I think that it makes a point.

I think Parallax's current solution for an easy to learn and easy to design with language is BlocklyProp.
