The most plausible explantion for those results is that that survey was created by users on www.vb6-for-evaaar.net and its users then created a bunch of sock puppet accounts to stuff the ballot box enough that anyone else who saw it would just roll their eyes and not even bother to cast a legit vote to try and unfubar the results.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

2008 & 2010 are used for building Python extensions, while 2012 is used for MSVC 12 stuff and 2013 is my main version.

... we are developing and maintaining software with Visual Studio .NET on one group of products, and 2008 on the rest.
Every time we've tried to convince the Pointy-Haired Bosses that we need to upgrade, they've insisted on a full bore regression test after the conversion. There aren't resources available for the testing, so no conversion.
Even though the tool chains haven't received support in years.
I use 2013 for Windows Apps, and 2012 for Web Apps
I really don't see much difference between the 2, but on 2013, I don't care for the licensing when using a MSDN Subscription. You have to fire it up every week or the license goes stale.
I've been using VS2010 professionally since it came out in 2010...
Personally I've been using VS2013 for a while now and I love it.
Now at my old job they didn't see the need for updating (I guess that's expensive and VS2010 IS a good product as well). Now I left them and they were planning to update to 2013 since they could use the free Community Edition as they're a small company.
Somehow they did think it was important to update SQL Server (Management Studio) as we had 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2014...
Now at my new company they are using... 2010...
Way to big for the free Community Edition, but not wanting to spend on a newer VS. They're now waiting for 2015. So I guess I'll be using 2010 for another year...
Gimme that sweet 2013+ goodness!
Personally I'll certainly update to 2015 if Microsoft releases another sweet free Community Edition!
Thanks for sharing. I have been on VS 2010 for about 3 years now, and haven't tried anything newer. Just yesterday I downloaded the VS 2013 CE and am putting on a laptop to see if I like it. Judging from your post, I may just wind up replacing 2010 on my next build.
As a c++ programmer who primarily writes Qt4 applications I develop everything in Visual Studio 2010 but build my releases in Visual Studio 2013. One reason for this is I very much prefer the Vs2010 IDE over the IDE in 2012 and above. The second reason is the debug visualizer for Qt4 supports up to VS2010. I have updated a visualizer for 2013 but it is not as complete.
