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)."

LOL! I'll check it out... but like you, I am sure, I have a full time job, a wife and two kids + extracurricular activities to take care of.

But seriously, I will go look at it.

Downloading now... I've played with FPC years ago...
