VC 6.0 was the official Microsoft compiler until the release
of Visual Studio.NET 2002.  During that long run, a number of
public and private projects standardized on that compiler,
similar to how many open source projects standardized on GCC
2.95 .

VC 6.0 was also a rather reliable and stable compiler, making
it the choice for stability over some of its closest successors.

But yeah, it is mostly historic now.
