I had to write software to convert VB6 to VB.NET and the translation tool that MS made had faults (or the vb6 code was so poorly written that it was impossible to automate) so I did it by hand. This was for the federal government, when the federal government decides that something is too archaic and moves on, I think people should take that as a sign lol.
I actually learned to program in Visual Basic 3.0. I used every version from 3-6 and honestly, VB.net seems to be the way to go in my opinion.

I don't know if I even have anything to say. I mean...VB6 is...dead. I used it. I used VBA. I use VB.NET. VBA makes an interesting transition from 6 to .NET, I suppose but seriously...there's no reason I can think of that anyone should want to use a VB6.
Seriously? I mean...I feel like I shouldn't even have to explain why that doesn't at all have anything to do with the quality of a language.
