Sounds like you didn't have to go through the pain that was Visual Basic. The file formats changed between 1.0 and 2.0, eventually you couldn't read 1.0 source files with later versions.

And then there were the wonderful 3rd party components that came with 3.0 that were then replaced with incompatible versions from Microsoft. You had to jump through hoops to get them plugged back in.

Worst of all, you couldn't have different versions of VB installed on the same box. At least Visual Studio lets other version coexist.

The '90s felt like a treadmill where you had to work like crazy just to stay in the same place.
