Any machine that is running Windows ought to be defenestrated, moved to
GNU/Linux.  But it makes no sense to try to pressure people to do this
by dropping our Emacs support for some or all versions of Windows.

As for moving from one version of Windows to another, we should never
adopt that as a goal.  To encourage people to a upgrade Windows grants
legitimacy to Windows, and therefore contradicts the GNU Project
philosophy.  Please do not argue on that basis here.
