Heh – here's how to get yourself mentioned in the VSTO blog – just read too much into a product release and blog about it.
People love these kinds of rumours, especially when they talk about a software company turning their back on long standing clients. Always gets attention.
Thankfully this load of hokum about VBA being discontinued is not true. The VSTO blog clears it up.
To be clear: VBA will continue to be part of the next Office release on Windows.
