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.
