I am not Revolting (a.k.a. The VB 6.0 Petition)
So there's this petition going around demanding Microsoft resume development on and continue support of VB 6.0.
I understand that organizations have huge investments in VB Classic code but the old IDE still works just fine and it, plus the binaries it creates, will continue to work in the years ahead. Why have Microsoft invest time and effort in the past when there are so many better technologies they could invest in for the future. Do we really want Microsoft to take people away from the Indigo or Avalon or Burton (Team System) teams to go and figure out how to get VB 6.0 to integrate into current versions of Visual Studio?
Really people, it’s time to move on and invest in the future.
