 New Microsoft UK website on VB6 with VB.NET

Hi

Warning: if you hate .NET you won't be interested in this post.

This new website on VB6 by Microsoft UK might be of interest. Some
good resources about extending VB6 with .NET or migrating / rewriting.

http://www.*-*-*.com/

Cheers
Mark

"With the help of Microsoft Partners who specialise in this area, we
have pulled together resources and tools which can help you make the
right decision - including some great discounts ranging from 10-25 per
cent on migration tools, plus the opportunity to win free copies of
tools to help you move to .NET."

The *right* decision is to stick with VB6 of course.

Actually, is there ANY record of a successful VB.Net application in
shrinkwrap on the shelves at Frys or PC World?

It's been eight years since MS foisted its VB.Net {*filter*} on the
world. Give it up, Steve! Throw in the towel! Find a (small) niche in
One Microsoft Way for VB.Net to be quietly buried while you "reinvent"
the real Visual Basic by resurrecting the entire VB6 product and
bringing out a new version, e.g. VB8 in 2011 that is 100% compatible.
That would give you ample time to develop all the razzmatazz that you
do so enjoy and for VB.Net to be quietly forgotten about. Think of the
past eight years as a nightmare from which you slowly, not rapidly,
awake, but think how now the screaming can finally stop. You can stop
it! You have it within your power, and, if you're quick before the
slump really hits home, within your budget, too.

Yeah. Pathetic isn't it. "We couldn't do it because we can't code for
toffee, but we found someone who can, and we'll do almost anything to
persuade you to buy their product so that we can keep our own hands in your
pockets"! Sheesh! The Micro$oft fairground gypsies are even giving prizes
away now. "Roll up, roll up. Every one a winner"!
