6. Many years ago I had a client...

who was going nuts because all his machine shop tools were controlled by machine code designed for IBM PCs. And only PCs-- no XT's, no clones, no 286's, no nothing but the original PC.

And the programmer disappeared.

The gummint agency I work for consistently uses Windows at least a generation old, largely due to security concerns. Just went from Vista to 8.1. No clue when we'll get 10, but it will be in the dim future when any significant bugs are out and security is as guaranteed as it can be.
