Retiring VS 2010 and VS 2012 support

With the upcoming release of VS 2015, the number of projects for DirectXTex configuration is getting rather unwieldy. The question is how many people are:

(a) Using VS 2010 with DirectXTex (which requires the Windows 8.1 SDK)

(b) Using VS 2012 with DirectXTex for Win32 desktop development. The VS 2012 compiler toolset is still getting used today for Xbox One XDK, Xbox One ADK, and Windows Store apps for Windows 8.0.

(c) In a related question, how many people still need Windows Store apps for Windows 8.0 support?

I will be retiring support for VS 2012 after this year.

This includes dropping Desktop_2012, XboxOneXDK, and XboxOneADK projects.

I will be keeping VS 2013 support (Desktop_2013, Windows81, WindowsPhone81) and VS 2015 (Desktop_2015, Desktop_2015_Win10, Windows10, XboxOneXDK_2015)

The Desktop_2012, XboxOneXDK, and XboxOneADK projects were dropped for the February 2016 release.
