Why are VisualC projects in SDL2-2.0.4/VisualC in VS2008?

Hi Devs,
I was wondering why all the test projects in SDL2-2.0.4/VisualC directory are all VS2008 projects. I’m been using VS2013 community with no problems but I’m beginning to think that by using VS2008 express there will better program compatibility, because all Windows versions later than Vista are bound to support my application, (Will have .NET 3.5 installed etc). I know that VS2008 was released with Vista… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Visual_Studio

Visual Studio 2008 is focused on development of Windows Vista, 2007 Office system, and Web applications.
… so it there a reason for the example projects being VS2008 or something else?

SDL’s test apps also have .vcxproj project files, which should work with VS2010 through VS2015.

Thanks David, I didn’t notice the vcproj / vcXproj difference. I must say that booting up and compiling with VC2008 is a lot faster than VC2013 (community) so I’ll be sticking with VC2008 for now.
