Yes, but don't forget this project started by chasing Win95...

And then it was NT4...

So, by saying that they don't need to chase anything newer than XP or even W2K, you've already stated that their original target moved. The fact is, in 5-10 years time, everyone will be telling them they should be targetting Windows 7 ;)

The only way their target might stop moving and they can truly catch up is if that Ferrari breaks down, or runs out of gas in the middle of the desert (which could certainly happen, but I suspect the tow truck would be around shortly to remedy the situation).
