That wasn't the point. Blinkbox is blaming Microsoft according to OnTheRopes. I think Blinkbox maybe be using it as an excuse. It can't be silverlight that doesn't end till 2021. There was no mention of not supporting 8.1 just windows 7.

Software Manufactures & Developers usually wait tell after extended support ends before they stop supporting a operating system. Even Firefox still supports windows xp.


P.S. There is always Linux

I have little doubt that any new software will not only cover Win 7 but previous versions as well , i would expect support for XP to be dropped by new developers though, amazing that that one is still supported by new software today.
