In the "Survey Free Text Answers" there are a lot of VB6 answers. You should have Visual Basic 6.0 in to the list, you will definitely be surprised how many programmers it has. Even if it is not in this list, in the "Survey Free Text Answers", Visual Basic 6.0 has the highest frequency!
This is even much! Usually, there are about 1k votes.
How the 10M are counted is not clear to me
Many ask-once members? Spammers? ...?
Would be over the 10 years of existance: 1M new per year, a bit less than 3k new members per day, every day over 10 years...
Having been prompted to look into the 'Other' entries (some spammer has found the most obscure page on the site to post) I see that the 3rd most popular other product to LEARN is VB6. Either there are a lot of smart asses in this survey (highly likely) or some seriously misguided individuals.
INMHO you don't need to learn VB6 to reverse engineer an application, the only valid reason to be involved in VB6. No I don't want to hear about all the poor bastards out there supporting VB6 apps that have been running for a couple of decades!
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
VB6 is depressingly common in some parts of the world.

Yep, I know about that. But the problem there is I have to know or learn 2 or more JS frameworks, if I go on that path (Durandal and KO). But when I learn Angular I don't have that problem. By using Angular its self I can develop SPA. And most importantly That project is backed up by GOOGLE
