I'm curious, what makes a Windows box "go" out of date. Sure, older boxes may not support newer technology, but if you're looking for a simple text-based interface, isn't DOS still viable?
To the best of my knowledge, there's nothing in the Windows codebase that causes the OS to expire, or stop working, after a year or so. Upgrades are driven by a quest for the new features of new versions because the business requires them. If the business needs didn't change I see no reason that the Windows OS would have to.
