Microsoft did a complete re-write of the code base between win 7 and win 8.
Also be aware that windows support for anything not the "latest and greatest"
has some serious flaws. Apple OSX and Linux have extensive support for older
hardware (and usually software). For some reason MS seems to think that the
code has to change every 2-5 years instead of just adding/improving things.
That's why one must buy newer versions of software programs to be "compatible"
with the new version of MS.
Every man is encompassed by a cloud of comforting convictions, which move with
him like flies on a summer day.
