as a part-time VB programmer I'd like to state that no rewrite from VB 5 to VB 6 was really needed since they're fully code-compatible. VB 5 was extended by VB 6 with many usefull features but the syntax didn't change in any way.
From VB 6 to VB.NET a total rewrite (oat 100 % bjectoriented) is needed. That's true.
