Me too. Still using VB6 and supporting legacy apps.

Started with VB1.0 and went through all of the versions up to VB6.

The ROI IS truly incredible.

Converting to C#. While I heard others in this forum talk about how "Verbose" VB6 is compared to C#, I could not disagree more.

In the end however, it is all just syntax. I believe it is the "B" (for Basic) in the name that causes the academics, and academic taught programmers ("developers" according to them) to hate VB6.

Finally, I need to point out that Bill Gates and Microsoft's first product wad GW-Basic. And I started out on Apple Basic.Cool | :cool:
