I have read this evening where a number of MVPs are signing a petition asking for Microsoft to add Classic VB back into the Visual Studio IDE. I would suggest that since they see a market for this, they can download the VSIP SDK and build an open source addin to Visual Studio so that they can have their own VB.COM.
BTW, I love to program in VB. I think it is a great language. I write stuff in it today. I have been doing my demos in VB.NET. VB6 was a great language and environment. It still is. Applications run with it today. Given the choice, I just don't want to go back. And, I don't want the total confusion this would create. 2 VBs? No thanks.
PS. I wish I could take credit for the idea, but Paul Murphy came up with the idea in an IM conversation last night. Geez, I wish I was as smart as him. :-)
