      Open source the VB6 programming environment in 2019.

      Microsoft have wasted 20 years on the failing .Net languages. Without ever achieving the success of the VB6 programming languages.

      The top 10 languages for Enterprise Application Development in 2018 are:

      Java ................58%
      JavaScript ........57%
      C++ ................ 46%
      C# ...................26%
      Python ............ 25%
      PHP ................22%
      VB.NET............17%
      C .....................16%
      Visual Basic 6 ..16%
      VBA .................15%

                    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.

                          C# has halved in popularity in six years.

                          Tiobe index January 2012 C# had a popularity rating of 8.76% https://www.tiobe.com/tiobe-index/csharp/

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

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

                          We need VB6 programming to be open source.

                            Open source the VB6 programming environment in 2019.

                            Microsoft have wasted 20 years on the failing .Net languages. Without success.

                            The top 10 languages for Enterprise Application Development in 2018 are:

                            Java ................58%
                            JavaScript ........57%
                            C++ ................ 46%
                            C# ...................26%
                            Python ............ 25%
                            PHP ................22%
                            VB.NET............17%
                            C .....................16%
                            Visual Basic 6 ..16%
                            VBA .................15%

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

                                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.
