A petition for the continued support and development of "Classic" VB:

http://classicvb.org/petition/

Why?  Let it die. Grieve, sure, but move on. Learn C# (or, if you must, VB.NET) and join the rest of us in this brave new world of efficient managed code and object-oriented development.

But then I never really "got" VB, even in its heyday. I blundered along, but I never really felt comfortable. It was just one of those things that everybody around me seemed to like, but I couldn't appreciate - like kebabs, Ocean Colour Scene, swimming, and chocolate milkshakes.
