Microsoft has "tried" to ignore the VB6 demographic but that is just a recurring miscalculation on their part.
Just curious, how many posts need to happen here before Microsoft will act on updating VB6?
Many of us like the idea of simply incorporating VB6 as part of the OS for current and future Windows versions. That may allow MS to save face if that is any kind of road block for them.
Microsoft has "tried" to ignore the VB6 demographic but that is just a _recurring_ miscalculation on their part. VB6 is bigger than any vision they had\have for it. It does not perfectly fit into a senior stock holders pigeon hole. Kinda like trying to squish soap in a shower with your foot. Very illusive. That seems to confuse their decision makers.
I think the Star Trek analogy is 100% accurate. Here is the truth Microsoft: we are not going away! Please align your business model to THAT fact. Thank you.
