Windows "Microsoft recently extended 'It Just Works' compatibility for Visual Basic 6 applications through the full lifetime of Windows 8. Visual Basic 6 first shipped in 1998, so its apps will have at least 24 years of supported lifetime. Contrast that with the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 (2002), which is incompatible with Windows 7 (2009)."

It's amazing how such an aberration is still alive and kicking... please kill it... VB6 is an awful, terrible "language".

.NET was a huge improvement, but Ms ruined it too with infinite versions, features, complexity and programmed obsolescence.
