I used to. We had VT100s in college. Then it was in the company standard. Even though the VT420s we were using at the time allowed for 132 characters per line (as do VT220s and newer), the PRO*C precompiler defaulted to 80 characters and the powers that were said we would abide by it.
 
For my own coding I stick to 112 characters because that's how many 8pt Andale Mono characters I can fit in 7.5"
