Bye bye VB6

Microsoft is finally ending its support for the Visual Basic 6 development tools on 8 April 2008. Microsoft will still support the VB6 runtime for the full lifetime of Vista (2017) and will continue to support Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003 for the support lifetime of these operating systems.

Though not a great fun of VB6 I've got to admit it left its mark on the turn of the century. And when we hear about companies that still depend upon VB6 10 years later, we just have to applaud this great tool for its lifetime, and to ask these guys: "are you disconnected from this planet? wake up!"

Thanks for the tip, André.
