Let's wait and watch. Interesting.....
But: that means that they will have to buy a new PC. ..

there is an amazing amount of people who are holding onto win_xp
in order to use some software, that won't run on a higher version of windows.

Win_10 will be used to lead the consumer in a whole new direction,
and backwards compatibility is *not* on that agenda. .. ..

in just a few years - there will be a niche market for people who want to use some
software for a particular purpose, and will *not* be able to get that software anymore.
