I just did a search in win95 for basic (this is a fresh install of win95,
so no other software has been added)... and there are NO matches. Going
to a command line and typing Qbasic give a "bad command or file name" as
I would expect since find found nothing.

WinME has the same results. I can't test 98 or NT 4 or 5 from home, so I
can't say what is on them, but I would guess the same thing (nothing).
