Being that most people, in the Real World, are likely to have had a
pretty decent exposure to Microsoft Office, I guess I'd be quite
surprised to find out anyone I'd consider a serious programmer hadn't
been curious enough to poke around inside it with VB a little bit. OTOH,
I'd be unlikely to hire anyone who'd never written and released
open-source code too.
