I'm running an up-to-date operating system, and I switched to C++ 11 as
soon as it became viable. I can do that because I'm an individual.
Organizations move more slowly, and the bigger they are, the slower they
move. It wouldn't surprise at all to see Visual C++ 6.0 still being
used. Wikipedia even says, "Visual C++ 6.0 is still quite popular".
