It seems lot of you use older versions of VS, especially at work.

It there any reason for that? Or there is just no rush for updating?

It is because we write software targeted for multiple OS versions. If you write something using VS6 for example, your targets will run properly (as long as the support files are installed) from anything from Windows 2000 up to Windows 2020 (whatever).

If you develop using Visual Studio 2012 for example, your code will not work on user machines running Vista or earlier.
