That's just ignorance I'm afraid. Before .net, VB6 was the only real solution for Enterprise apps, and there was nothing wrong with using it. Almost all enterprise solutions from houses that used an MS stack ran on VB6. The fact that "B" stands for "BASIC" and you think "BASIC is for kids" is simply your opinion, it isn't reality.
