      Microsoft should allow a free download of the VB6 programming language and IDE.
      It is included in a MSDN subscription, so there would be no technical difficulty in making a free download available.

        Microsoft really have no excuse not to open source the VB6 programming language.

        Classic VB6 Programming commented  · 

        At its peak in January 2012, C# scored 8.763% in Tiobe.
        By February 2017, C# had fallen to 4.902% in Tiobe.
        By April 2017, C# had fallen further, to 3.579%

        The popularity of C# has fallen by more than half between January 2012 and April 2017.

        The trend for C# is downwards.

        We need VB6 programming to be open source.

                  This would be a good way forward for VB6 programming. Please consider this suggestion.

                    Thank you Microsoft. It is great to see that you still continue to support VB6 until at least 2025.
