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)."

"Winforms is a dead end. Use WPF. Or use Qt with native bindings if you feel adventurous. "

Use Lazarus and or Delphi instead. WPF is probably not going to last either.

last time I tried to use WPF it had a very unfinished feel to it.
