AFAIR, Windows 98 is the last Windows version that is both reasonably
non-buggy and that does not require you to grant Microsoft networked
access to your computer with the option of destroying it without
recompensation.  The latter, for example, is not compatible with some
government policies.

My laptop has one partition with W98 for the odd tax return software.
Granted, I would not bother installing Emacs on something which I fire
up once a year.

I have no idea what the installed base for those actually _working_
with Windows software would be.
