Today Microsoft has put up a web site devoted to VB6 developers !
Nice to see ... It's a small step in the right direction albeit years late
Does it address the issues VB6 users face ? No, of course not. All it does is consolidate information already out there. Vb6 users are still faced with a costly and time consuming upgrade process.
Anyway, this is a good step forward. Let's hope they don't stop at this though. Much much more needs to be done. Sadly, since Microsoft went .NET and stated some 3 years ago they were planning EOL for VB6, the VB developer community has shrunken by 25 % (according to Evans Data). When you are loosing developers at that rate, you really need to stop and admit there was a mistake made.
