There is no excuse not to allow a free download of the VB6 programming environment.

Microsoft launched C# to compete with Java. But C# failed in that. Microsoft tell us that C# had just 1.8 million developers. Poor compared with Java's 9-10 million developers.
VB.NET was far worse, with just 180,000 developers at its peak. Poor compared with VB6's 6.1 million.
And now C# and VB.NET are both declining.
