Please Microsoft open source Visual Basic 6.
Open source or don't discontinue this programming language. VB.NET is useless, we want to build native application not a huge framework to run the software/application and easier syntax than VB.NET. Else we have to move on to a different language like C++ Builder/Delphi.
WE WANT Open Source Visual Basic Classic! If Microsoft refuses to improve Visual Basic Classic, then there are many programmers willing to improve this language and make it even better! There are many programmers who want to develop software using Visual Basic. This is just not acceptable that Microsoft is refusing every request of Visual Basic Classic programmers! If Microsoft hasn't yet realised the kind of craze/enthusiasm programmers have for Visual Basic Classic, then its about time! Come on Microsoft make Visual Basic Classic OPEN SOURCE or don't stop its development! Microsoft is neither doing anything nor letting others do anything!
Please Microsoft! We feel something missing when we see all the other programming languages being developed and Visual Basic Classic abandoned. Please, make a newer version! Many programmers love VB Classic, so why dishearten us. Also, that there is a huge demand for it as we see in USER-VOICE, Microsoft should so something about this, if Microsoft does not do anything there is no point in this USER-VOICE system. Its time to make a newer version!
