    If I were the VB.NET decision-maker on Microsoft's .NET development team, I could easily kill VB6. I would do this:

    In 2000, when the beta version of .NET was released, I also released a separate VB7-IDE, which was a 100% clone of VB6-IDE, which was almost identical to VB6-IDE, except that VB7-IDE only supported VB.NET code (note: VB7-IDE will automatically convert VB6 code to VB.NET code). Then, even if Microsoft could not provide VB6 upgrade tools, VB6ers would gradually migrate to VB.NET. (If I were the VB.NET project manager, I wouldn't let a completely amateur-level VB6 upgrade tool out of the cage.)

    And just like that, after 5-10 years, VB6 was killed.
    I see that C # has overtaken Java in recent rankings of programming languages.Perhaps Microsoft's goal of killing VB. Net is for this ranking.

    In fact, Microsoft is fighting internally. But he completely ignored the rise of other great products. For example, python has become the most popular programming language in the world. Even the Web version of Excel uses py to run formulas on the server. Why doesn't he use JS? If you use JS instead of VBA. The web version of Excel already uses py for calculating formulas. Why not do it with JS? This is the most appropriate. Maybe JS can't call the com DLL on the server, and I can't call the windows API directly. In addition, py is already the most used programming language in the world. So Microsoft has only one way to surrender. Use this open source stuff for free. It includes killing its own ie and then using the free Google Chrome kernel webview2. Why use your own when you can use it without spending money?

    If, in 1999, VB6 were to continue to develop, its only competitor would be py, and if Microsoft invented a 64-bit version of vb7, VBA would support Linux, MacOS, and even basic code on android. Maybe no one will use python, and Microsoft will have at least half of the market. But Microsoft's stingy style, he said, is our development language and development tools. It can only be used on windows system. If we can use basic language on Linux and Android system, who else will buy windows system? A paid operating system is doomed to fail completely in the end. Its share has changed from 70% to 7%, and finally it is 0%.

    Office hasn't remained in one place, either. VBA might have, but Office has been re-written more than once. All the new file types (docx, xmlsx...or whatever that is) are zip files, which is a far cry from what they were when Office first rolled out. They haven't even kept the same face on it, and people complained bitterly about THAT change, too...until they likely realized that it had some real advantages. Now it's changing yet again with the semi-always-online Office 365 and Web Office. They did keep continuity, though, which you can't say for VB. They wanted to, they just couldn't figure out how to do it, nor has anybody since then.

    MVPs may not be experienced professionals. I was offered an MVP at one point, and back then I was far from a professional programmer...not all that experienced, either. The MVP program was more about rewarding those who assisted others to get into programming rather than a recognition of capability. They were also distributed much more liberally. How many MVPs were there at the time? What percentage spoke out, and in what way? I think there were probably a LOT, so even a large number of objections may have been a trivial percentage. Still, it was people who were recognized for passing on knowledge of an existing system. One might expect they'd be less enthusiastic about that existing system being changed radically.

    Not sure, though, as I don't know how many MVPs there were, nor what percentage spoke out, nor why. It just seems like there are multiple possible answers to those which will result in different interpretations.
    Once on a programming technology forum in China, CSDN. Net, every question we asked would be answered by 30 to 200 people.
    Now the forum has been closed, the page can still be opened, but no one will continue to post new posts, and no one will reply.

    In any case, there is still a need for programmers to ask for help.There is no other website of the same type that can solve this problem.

    Until the invention of chatgpt was dismantled, in fact, 50 to 80% of the simple questions could be asked without asking for help on the forum.

    Once you were on the forum, if you wanted to ask a question, you had to pay the corresponding points. You can only earn points if you help more people to answer their questions.
    Although the points are free, only when you pay and share your knowledge can you get help from others.For example, if you are willing to pay 40 points and 200 points for a question, the positive degree of others is completely different, and the number of replies may increase several times.
