I still use MSVC 6 (1998) as my IDE because it has better human factors for me than later versions of MSVC.

Placing documents into the public domain
Many Germans incorrectly believe that copyrights cannot be abandoned. The actual situation in German law is that "Nutzungsrechte" (literally "usage rights") include the rights of copying, modification, distribution, etc.; these rights can be waived, as in other countries. "Urheberrechte" (literally "originator rights") include reputation rights and generally cannot be waived, but this protection against fraud, libel, etc. has nothing to do with whether something is in the public domain. Beware that many sources (including Google Translate) mistranslate "Urheberrecht" as "copyright"; this contributes to the common confusion among Germans on this topic.
