      >> Close VB6 product related suggestions

      Most IT professionals feel as long as there is a Windows OS there will be VB6. Those at MS know that VB6 has played a major role in Windows success.

      Its pretty obvious that if any process improvement was to occur in these forums the starting place would be to weed out all the fake accounts and corresponding unprofessional posts.

      Have a forum where all the user accounts can actually be linked back to a real person. If MS owns LinkedIn perhaps you can start there. Many ways to approach this though.

      Cheers.

          This could be a move by MS to mend some very old wounds. Could also send the message that their Open Source efforts are in the full spirit of Open Source and not just a select finite linear set of data points to check off the "see we do open source" box.

          This is a good idea if the key decision makers can be objective enough.

                Here we are in well into 2016 and there seems to be no end to VB6 mania!

                Build it and they will come...

                  >> The fact that MS is now making the Community version of VisualStudio is GREAT.

                  Because of the registration constraints it is not truly Open Source or full fledged CE. This can easily be fixed if MS simply adopt the industry's "de facto" Open Source standards rather than force users to conform to the MS vision of Open Source\CE.

                  This is a positive request though. It may nudge MS to be a true Open Source contributor. :-)
