Extremely close to QBasic on the PC, in fact I am sure that apart from the Machine specific things like GEM etc, the core of it is pretty much identical.
We used HiSoft Basic and QBasic when we were developing some networking apps in Uni, and we found that apart from the odd command, it was pretty much portable either way.
