Sure! There are still some around. I have installed VS 6 and VS 2003.
Not everyone likes to replace a full-featured VS 2003 with an express
edition of VS 2005, or similar situations.
VS 2005 allows you to open VS 2003 projects, on the other side VS 2003
just presents an error msg and there is no trivial work-around to open
VS 2k5 projects.
Nevertheless, even if I just got a copy of VS 2k5 Pro, I will keep my
VS 6 & Co. around on my system, for several reasons.
So, please keep support for VS 2k2/3 intact for a while.
