Does anyone here still use any of the following programming languages:
2. Q(uick Basic)
3. Visual Basic for MS-DOS
4. Visual Basic 2.0-4.0 for Windows 3.x
5. Visual Basic 5.0-6.0
6. Other old programming languages for other platforms.
And yes, I realize the last few are more Windows than DOS related but I think old Windows stuff isn't too far off topic. Anyway, does anyone still tinker with these programming languages for a hobby or does anyone know of or even work with legacy software that is still used for practical purposes developed with any of these languages? As far as I know Visual Basic 6.0 still lingers on and people are trying to keep it alive. I almost exclusively used the old Basic's for my hobby and don't remember seeing much practical software developed with them. So in short, does anyone here still use these for a hobby or even practical reasons?
And yes, some searching on the internet does indicate there is still some interest in some of these old languages, but I am curious as to what other people might reply here, if at all.
Do not read if you don't like attention seeking self-advertisements!
Did you read it anyway? Well, you can find all sorts of stuff I made using various programming languages over here:
