Re: Future of VB
Your question was posted in the CSharp newsgroup.
Try, on the same server, the vb.dotnet.discussion
But, to respond to your question, VB.Net is a
completely new language, designed to create programs
for a completely new environment. In my opinion,
at least 99 percent of all business applications
should be either be maintained in VB6 or completely
rewritten to make use of the Net Classes and ADO.Net.
I suspect that the migration tool was developed more
for the marketing folks at MSFT than for developers
in the field.
