For those who like really old programming languages, older even than 
Basic, there are two active COBOL projects that will run on Linux, 
and, with some extra effort, on MSWIn. Google on Tiny COBOL and Open 
Source COBOL. I do real work for myself and for customers using these 

Another neglected gem is Mety Bochane's simplified RDBMS called MDBMS.
Marty doesn't work on it any more but I have the sources for *nix 
systems on one of my sites.

Go to
and scroll down looking for MDBMS on the software list. It is really 
simple to use.
