SUMMARY

Microsoft QuickBASIC for the Macintosh will run on the Macintosh IIX computer.

The Macintosh IIX computer has a 68030 processor, a new math coprocessor, and a 1.44-megabyte disk drive. QuickBASIC Version 1.00 is not able to generate 68030 code and cannot take advantage of the special features of the 68030 chip, but QuickBASIC's code can still be used on this hardware.

Microsoft has not announced plans to upgrade QuickBASIC to take special advantage of the new capabilities in the 68030 chip.
