Or, put another way. Remember when cars could use leaded gasoline? Then all
of the sudden, it was done away with. Now all cars MUST use unleaded. Sure,
older cars will run on unleaded, but ALL new cars are made to run on
unleaded. The old cars eventually wear out and end up in the scrap yard.
Eventually, the owner of the now worn out old car, with next to impossible
to find parts is forced to retire the old car and buy a newer model. And so
the cycle goes.... same with the web, same with most anything else.
