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)."

VB6 hasn't been as successful as it is because it's crap...obviously. It worked great for what it was intended to do and that's partly why it's still around. Bash it all you like but there's no denying that fact unless you're too immature to give credit where credit is due.
