MS has announced that VS2012 will support native XP targeting in an update
to be released a few months after it first ships.

One reason to move forward from VS2008 is more C++11 support, such as
'auto', lambdas, etc. which are even in VS2010.  I believe lambdas can be
used as slots in Qt 5, which is long overdue, and you don't want to be left
out because you're still using VS2008.
