GW-BASIC (Gee-Whiz Basic), released in 1983 by Microsoft, was a variation of the BASIC programming language. The language came with MS-DOS operating systems of that time and later versions. GW-BASIC provided a simple way to write programs for early personal computers without needing expensive compilers or development environments. GW-BASIC's user interface consisted of commands executed through typing or loading from text files, which made it easy for beginners to understand programming concepts such as variables, loops, and conditional statements. Its success leads Microsoft to introduce other versions like QuickBASIC and Visual Basic.
