sorry, but i really can't find anything worth replying to here.  being a free 
software developer doesn't mean being able to force people to adhere to what 
works on their personal legacy systems where the user refuses to upgrade the 
software.  that is unreasonable.

i've got plenty of old systems, but i don't try and force everyone else to try 
and support them at the detriment of future progress.
