msmoriarty writes "Microsoft told a group of MVPs today at Tech-Ed that
it [0]plans to take Visual Basic 6 open source and will release the
source code on CodePlex. A source at the event said that Microsoft is
planning to release only the VB6 language on codeplex – not Visual Studio
or related tools." Update: 05/20 02:24 GMT by [1]T : Alas, too good to be
true. msmoriarty writes with an apologetic retraction: "We got it wrong —
Microsoft denied and went back to our source and they pulled
confirmation. Our apologies."
