I did that for a while to built some old software. Despite some of it's problems, it felt like a Ferrari compared to modern Visual Studio. (So, when Microsoft said that "10 was the next 6", I said "not even close.")
I originally installed it to be able to work from home on a project that I supported/maintained/programmed at my last job. It's a good IDE but I like VS2010 better, even though it does have it's problems.

So, I'm enjoying my lunch: a bowl of oatmeal heavily infested with raisins and unsalted peanuts. I found it necessary to explain why oatmeal is the ideal food.
"Why?", I was asked.
"Well", I explained, "suppose I finish the oatmeal. Then, for some reason, I get nauseous. Well, if I manage to catch the puke in my original bowl, it not only looks the same as when originally prepared, but it's even still warm and ready to eat again!"

There was also a costume contest which a very young (5 or 6?) Luke and Leia won.
