Wait, what?? Microsoft ended support for VB6 because of a conspiracy by the Evil Object-Oriented Nerd Alliance? Were they blackmailing Microsoft or something? Did they have pictures of Bill Gates using Linux? I've heard some wild theories before but this one...
But Dunn is right. Basic is dead these days. VB6 jobs are long gone and the only VB.Net jobs available are for maintaining code written back when it was more popular. Now employers want hard C# experience and you better know all the design patterns and how to do unit testing.
