I was just speculating. I guess that there might be some rather large 
companies and organizations that are still relying on old software for some 
vital parts of their businesses. I think there will always be a risk (seen 
from MS) that these companies chose another OS next time (Linux or Mac), 
especially when there are solutions to run virtual machines to keep the old 
windows/DOS apps.

If you look at the past, MS has always been very keen to keep backward 
compatibility - maybe that is about to change, but I'm not so sure.
