Last I looked, previous releases of Blender are still available.  If
we drop XP support, you can still run Blender on your old system, you
just don't get newer features.

This is reasonable.  New features tend to be computationally expensive
and if you have old stuff, you probably don't have a GPU.

I'm a big Linux fan but I would not recommend your average Windows
user install it, no matter what the distro.  Unless you feel adventurous!
