This is an excellent point.
I recently downloaded Android Studio so I could program a (I thought at the time) relatively simple but useful app. I powered through a bunch of stuff and almost have something useable now, but learning Java is tough!
Where do young people go nowadays for the equivalent of BASIC.EXE?
(Yes, command lines were a bit tough - but all you really had to learn was "C:", "CD \what\ever" and "dir" and you could function well enough)
