Err, since when?

While many of us don't care much for Windows for technical reasons (but
this is not the place for anti M$ flamewars, so I'll leave it at that), I
didn't think that discussions of 10-year-old+ versions were off-topic.

In fact the inital FAQ for this list specifically mentions you can talk
about 10-year-old PCs, and I would assume by extension the software that
runs on them.
