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
If you look at the past, MS has always been very keen to keep backward
