@kjliew - I know you have to add your Qemu 3D advertising to every thread..
You just love to rant for non-sense. Who's ever going to update a dead, EOL last decade OSes such as Win98/ME/2K/XP? Well, if one insists on playing native for 20+ years old, unsupported games, then that is just one's own trouble creation.
Well, I didn't say it but you said it out for me 😁
Backward compatibility is a torn debate. At one end, it helps retain the existing customer base but on the other it also hinders innovation and creates dinosaurs that won't survive "Strategic Inflation Point" (SIP), a term coined by the late Intel CEO's and Chairman Andrew Grove. This is Stanford Business Management 101 for entrepreneurship in modern era. Retaining existing customer base pales in comparison to Growth and Innovation is the key to bring Growth. The ideal of keeping backward compatibility while continuing Innovation seems too good to be true, as with most aspects of lives. The "Fruit" company is a good example. No investors or businesses would like to see stagnant in progress. That is also true for personal finance, inflation will eventually wipe out a stagnant portfolio.
Microsoft has done more than enough, they literally gave up on that and happily gave away everyone a legitimate copy of Windows XP to use in VM. 😀 Now, one can use that same copy of Windows XP **CENSORED** to play games. 🤣
