Don't you feel yourself in a loop? If they patch it, they apparently
want to use it and if they want to use it, it is not useless for them
because if it were useless, they would not use it and thus they would
have no reason to patch it.

If the modern computer environment does not offer important features
that were implemented in the old environment decades and still work,
than (at least for me) it is natural to use the old environment.
