OK, we’ve all heard of Microsoft trying to withdraw support for a product (NT 4.0 anybody?), but at a recent partner event they stated that support for VBscript is to be phased out. Apparently there is a replacement product codenamed Monad, which will allow the scripting of console applications. When I pushed for timescales, I was told that it won’t be tomorrow, but could be as soon as 12-18 months before VBscript is withdrawn.
Expect to see an outcry soon from Windows system administrators everywhere!
