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)."

The people this issue really bothers are the ones who have done programming in other languages where whitespace isn't meaningful. It makes their brain itch because it just seems like something is missing...

More than that, the ones most bothered by it are the crap programmers who don't bother with whitespace in languages where it isn't significant.
