actually, I have seen MS source code as part of my job. and it's not pretty.

But that's not the only reason. MS obsession with backward compatibility is a major headache for them.

Agreed. And it is the sole reason people keep buying Windows.

Few people deliberately 'buy' Windows. They walk into their local electronics or variety store and say.. "I'd like a computer please" and the sales guy baffles them with specs and stats that they don't understand, before handing over a computer with whatever version of Windows is available at the time. That's the simple reality...but you surely knew that already...
