The main reason is that nmake uses an obscure and non-standard syntax.
Also, by default, you have to run vcvars32.bat in order to build from the
command line, and no one ever remembers the name (I had to go look it up).
But the main reason is that the MSVC GUI can't do anything with a makefile.
You need the DSP to use the GUI to tweak settings (e.g. link to C-runtime
statically or dynamically).

At least with MSVC6.x (and I can't imagine there are many people still using
older versions) you don't actually need the DSW.  MSVC can generate that
from the DSP for single projects.
