In 2014 there were tens of thousands of developers who still prefer Visual Basic 6.0 over Visual Basic .NET. Moreover, in recent years some developers lobbied aggressively for a new version of Visual Basic 6.0.  A dialect of Visual Basic, Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), is used as a macro or scripting language within several Microsoft applications, including Microsoft Office.
