FWIW, I see 3D content creation as a fundamentally high-end endeavor.  
Being able to start learning Blender on low-end systems is great. However,  
I want Blender to be taken seriously as a professional tool, not just  
something you play with until you are able to afford "real" hardware and  

If development is being held back by attempting to support old hardware  
and OS versions and no one is willing to step up and support those bits  
then their use should be depreciated.I would much rather see the limited  
developer hours available put towards moving Blender forward rather than  
attempting to maintain compatibility with an ever increasing list of  
legacy hardware and OS versions.
