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)."

So I tried it out. I actually like it, easily understandable interface. I wrote a silly little app that takes input and writes it out to a label...

It worked. It was a little slow, so as I went to save the project it crashed while I was browsing for a location to save.

It seems pretty neat tho'!
