I think we should set GnuCash 4's minimum support at least at Win8.1, which 
EOLs 1 October 2023. Win8 EOLed 2 years after 8.1's general release in 2013 
[1]. But we might consider skipping that and making it Win10 because even 8.1 
is getting security updates only since last year. Win10 was released 29 July 
2015 so that would be consistent with the Ubuntu 16.04 minimum on Linux. FWIW 
to be consistent we'd set MacOS at 10.11 El Capitan.

With Win10 MS has moved to a sort of continuous integration model where it's 
essentially impossible to be connected to the net and be more than a few weeks 
out of date. I'm not sure whether "minimum supported version" is meaningful in 
that environment.
