“A petition for the development of unmanaged Visual Basic and Visual Basic for Applications”
This petition was started on March 8, and as of this post it already has 222 Microsoft MVP's signed on.
Considering that BASIC was the very first product that Microsoft ever sold, I totaly agree with this petition. Microsoft shouldn't abandon that which made it great. I also have thousands and thousands of lines of code written in "classic" vb, which is impossible to convert to Visual Fred, so yes I'm biased, and I have every right to be.
This petition, if you don't read technology news websites, has been around a bit. Computer World has a nice article about the petition. More references can be found here, here and here
