Which version of MSVS do you (still) use?

As you might know, we've recently dropped support for VC98, and now I've started thinking about which versions of MSVC we should support in wxWidgets 3.1.0 release. Even for 3.0, we only provide binaries for 2008 and later, and by the time 3.2 is out, Microsoft will probably have released at least a couple of more compiler versions, so we will probably have to drop at least it to from the list of binaries by then. I don't really think we are going to fully drop support for it though, doing it for only a 7-8 year old compiler would be quite out of character. But who knows?

And, in fact, I'd very much like to know more about the versions of the compilers that wxWidgets users really use. So here is a small poll, please take a few seconds to click on the earliest version of MSVC that you still use:


And, if you have any trouble with voting here, you can also do it directly from the poll page.

Thanks in advance!
