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)."

And it's often quite handy to have, at least most of the time, a folding bike in the trunk of your car - a sort of hub and spokes model of transportation, on a personal level.

(not sure where I'm going here, with this sort of analogy - perhaps it's about the utility of embedding into "serious" apps scripting languages like Lua ;p )
