I'm using VB6 and writing apps that will work across the internet, directly connecting two or more people to play simple games. I was wondering where "Classic VB6" will be in say 5-10 years. Will Classic VB apps still run on Windows, or is it a 'must-do' eventual upgrade to VB .Net just to keep my apps operable? I have no interest in establishing website code, just direct connect software.

Any comments appreciated.


BTW: Is VB .Net a similar prgramming language to VB6? Is it very difficult to make the transition (in the basics)? Will I even recognize it?
