Good question. I never tested it. It seems vc has a different toolset 
for it:
We are only missing remote debugging and static analysis. So, not much.  
(But it is probably the last version with XP support)

And I think we should support XP until April 8, 2014, when all xp 
computers will be destroyed by released vulnerabilities. ;)
