Happy Birthday, Visual Basic.
Microsoft has been asked a number of times to open source VB6. This has been repeatedly rejected without any real reason being given. However to remove a language from its community without an exceptional reason is an act of vandalism. The new Microsoft claims to back open source, why not in this case? There is no need for Microsoft to do any more work on the code base - simply open source it and allow the community to keep it alive. Even if you don't think that VB6 is a language you would ever want to use you should back this proposal simply to allow others the freedom to do so.
Microsoft must be dumb to censor a suggestion for an open-sourced VB6 during the Visual Basic 25th anniversary "Celebratiathon".
