NewsIs Learning VB6 Now A Complete Waste Of Time? PinstaffTerrence Dorsey8-Nov-12 9:41 
It seems like there is a lot of sentiment that VB6 is pretty much useless to learn anymore. I'm not sure I agree with that position personally, but I wanted to throw it out there and see what sorts of responses we got. I particularly want to explore reasons other than the "maintain the vast body of legacy code out there" reason. A couple of things that occur to me personally are the ease of creating and using COM objects, and the ease of creating wrappers for the Win32 API.
Are you still using Visual Basic? Tell us why it rocks (or not)...
