是否仍可使用/支持Visual Studio 2003

Pretty much what the title says really.

We have some code that is .NET 1.1 based and no real desire to up-convert it. However, we are looking to add developers to the team and they will need copies of Visual Studio.

My understanding is that they will need VS 2003 - as this is the only IDE that supports .NET 1.1 but I am wondering if we are still able to purchase it!


Mainstream support for the framework (1.1) ends at the same time

Differences between mainstream vs extended support are explained here: support.microsoft.com/gp/lifepolicy

The decision not to upgrade is because of lack of (programmer) resources. It works, and only needs minimal support so we don't want to touch it at this point.
