I still enjoy dabbling in it at home. But have started using more vb.net, etc to make small GUIs. I'm also not in "IT" anymore per say, so I mostly write small programs for task automation type things, and it eliminates the need to get the DLL registered (I do still miss the days of being an admin account).

Also, I see more and more that most people don't even know what kix/kixforms is, so it's just easier.
