I'm afraid CoBB is right. It's not a new programming language, it's just a (rather large) set of routines that you'll always have handy when you include the API. Of course that's not my marketing speech, but I'm afraid it's true
The implications can be big though, because it also brings some standardization and abstraction in the process, but that's a boring story that you're not going to be interested in I think
Anyway, it certainly simplifies things for beginners, it helps advanced users to test and develop software faster, and it is actually pretty useful for people who want to write hybrid programs because all they'd have to do is link the routines they wish to use to some input and output OS vars. I know I wished I had something like this when I was still making hybrid programs, about 5 years ago

Yes, I think it could be. That depends on what you'd require your AI to do. Most AI's are a heap of complicated calculations and conditions though, and it's going to be a lot tuffer to do that in asm than in Basic.
Edit: Nice, 600th post since the last forum wipe
