There is a great horror story website from an ex dev that I can't remember the name of or find at the moment that tells of some of the horrible stuff MS has to do because some dev did something really janky that one time 9 years ago but it sold 9 millions copies and if it breaks everybody blames MS. For example win95 explorer has mem leaks, there are really popular file view extensions that relied upon said memory leaks so they could get data they needed to work. So MS fixed the leak, then had to go and put the leak back in. The comparability mode says " since you don't know this exe, install all the basic shims for Windows Version X on this app"

I think you're referring to http://ptgmedia.pearsoncmg.com/images/9 ... s_ch01.pdf
