I hate to disagree with Mr. Paris (because I am wrong so often), but:

1.      I assumed that the survey was referring to AS/400 Basic, as it 
referred to other AS/400 languages like PL/1 and such.  Any reference to 
Visual Basic, I would presume, would have spelled out those words, or else 
said "VB".

2.      I suspect that even IBM is not stupid enough to pull support for 
RPG III anytime soon.
