Regarding just Windows:  < http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/products/lifecycle >

Windows XP will stop receiving any sort of support for those that have paid Microsoft extra money for it by April of next year.  Support for the vast majority of people ended 4 years ago.

Maybe this is something to consider in the milestones of the manifesto, or not.  I personally am committed to support the current milestones for the software I personally operate.
