This is crazy situation, it breaks apart all the logic that I learned from my marketing class back in college. Why to kill an excellent product? and throw away resources, talent and time invested on it, why just in its best momment....Why to promote and force the entry of a product that people didn't ask for? and didn't like indeed? (.NET). VB.NET will never have the reputation, nor the quantity of programmers VB6 had. What a waste of time, money and effort. My God!
