    you're alone in all this

    Clearly not, since Microsoft employs a lot of C++ developers, none of whom are upset by dropping XP support.

    IntelliSense if of course very good, but if you can't do without it you're not a good programmer.

    I didn't say "I can't work without it", I said "it makes me more productive".

    Anyway, I'm bored of this thread. I was just trying to give you a viewpoint you hadn't thought of. So, whatever, I don't care anymore.

    /me out.

    There are plenty of great compilers and toolchains out there too. If you don't like the Visual Studio IDE and you don't like the Visual Studio toolchain (because it won't compile for XP), why are you bothering to use Visual Studio?

    Nice.

    So, we are saying "Microsoft, we'd like to use your compiler, but we can't afford losing support for XP, here's why, please reconsider that decision of yours", and you are saying "go away and use a different compiler". Classy.

    Sorry for being blunt, but perhaps it is indeed best if you don't post any more of this nonsense you so gloriously call "a viewpoint" here.
