One of the criticisms by geeks of modern computers is that they no longer have programming built in. When you bought a BBC Micro, Spectrum or Dragon 32, the default thing they did was to run the BASIC programming language.
One way to address this is to download Small Basic from Microsoft which is quite a nice, cut down version of the language. It's only for PC, so for Mac/UNIX guys, you're stuck, although one option I'd suggest is getting Python which is not a bad language to start programming with.
Tiresomely predictable tastes
