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)."

RE[7]: VB6.....

Member since:

I plan on playing with it some more. I have always been fond of the algol/pascal family of languages.

I had been using Euphoria for a couple of years (for fun), wrote some small apps with that and wxWidgets and some web development. But... the OpenEuphoria specs keep expanding and adding features. While they features are useful, it feels a little like it is taking away from some of the base-ness of the original language.
