ms just needs to tell the developers.  look, we are going to do this,
heres the coding, heres the new api's conform or get left back.

theyll conform.

Yeah, I can see how that conversation will pan out.

MS -> App Developers
"Yeah, well, we''re pretty much doing away with what you're used to so your
app isn't going to work the next Windows release.  We need to do this to
improve security, it'll be worth it for everyone in the long run.  Meantime,
you're gonig to need to recode your app."

App Developers -> End User
"Microsoft broke our app."

End User
"God damn Microsoft.  That new OS is crap, nothing works on it.  I won't be
investing any of my hard earned cash on their new OS."

If an end user's current apps don't work on the new OS, chances are they
won't upgrade.  It's not Microsoft that can drive app developers to recode
for a new OS, it's got to be the end user.
