All OSes will eventually be phased out when it comes to the end of their support lifecycle. This is determined by Microsoft. Even so, there are still some die-hards out there who still use W95! Vista has already been out for 2 1/2 years, and is in SP2. XP, its predecessor, is now in SP3. Windows 7 is just around the corner, and Windows 8 is reputed to be under development. It simply costs too much to provide support for very old OSes, besides which they have difficulty running on modern hardware due to the lack of driver support.
