So where it goes wrong is that there has never really been pressure from Microsoft to convert legacy software for a new OS or develop CPU architecture (or even CPU architecture independently).

Windows has always been backwards-compatible, which is why they have become so large. I bought Ozi Explorer sometime in the early 2000s, the last update of that program for Windows is from 2016 (and the last overhaul of the website is probably from 2005). The software runs fine on all Windows versions from W2K and up and if this software suddenly stopped working on W11, I would be really bummed, but I don’t know if the developer would completely rewrite the software for W11.

This backward compatibility has advantages, but also considerable disadvantages. I would like to set up an ARM based Windows system for my children, with which they can not only do their homework, but also play some games.
