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

    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.
    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.

    We need VB6 programming to be open source.

    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.
