[NTLK] Is NewtonScript/NSBasic worth learning these days?

Actually they are not hard to learn. NSBasic is not as powerful but easier
to use. I have on my website a special terminal to aid in writing NSBasic
software. It boils down to, if you want fast development, use NSBasic, if
you want more power and flexibility use Newton script. NSBasic does have
some provision for calling Newton script. I, personally, learned both but
then I am a professional software developer. YMMV.

point of view.  And a Windows/Unix perspective, no Mac.  Anyway, this is
as much for my info as for a conversation piece.
