I know, VB6 is a sh***y language and bever really worked, which is why I'm only now reporting a 10 year old project. It was a semi-favour job I did and it is from far mission critical but the software works and could possibly last a bit longer unchanged if it wasn't for a big change in the company. They have got a big bithca system in for most of the critical work and it all runs on a Linux box, my VB6 app would need an extra box running WinX to keep it going.

So we've decided to port it to run on Linux and given a choice between C++ and Java, I know which will be quicker. By the end of the week the coding will be done. Hard work!
