The above policy also aligns with Windows as a Service concept to some extent - a given Windows 10 release has finite support lifetime.
And it also aligns with general practice among all commercial, and the vast majority of open-source, software developers that they will not make any attempt at backward compatibility with an unsupported version of an operating system, Windows or otherwise.  There are times when backward compatibility is "accidentally maintained" but it should never be expected, ever, by intent for unsupported versions of any operating system.

In the age of most things going in the "as a service" direction, it is truly futile to make any attempt to stay with one thing, no matter how much one might like it, when it has been abandoned by its own maker.

Science has become just another voice in the room; it has lost its platform.  Now, you simply declare your own truth.
