vb.net being decommissioned?
Posted on 2007-03-22
Is VB.net is being decommissioned, or is this a rumor? I heard about vb6 no longer being supported by microsoft, but to the best of my knowledge vb.net will continue to be a language that is supported by Microsoft for many, many years to come.
A friend insisted to the contrary, and persisted telling me that it was going to be supported in the near future, and future versions of Visual Studio.net would simply inherit the old framework components for vb.net, and no improvements will be made to the language, as well as support being gradually dropped alltogether, because .net was really designed for C#.
I did some surfing, but could not find anything about this. Only I found about vb6. I think that one they are definately going to stop supporting (vb6).
This concerns me. I enjoy vb.net, and coming from vb6 days, it was the most natural language for me to learn.
