Instead of trying to convince to "carry a heavy cargo of compatibility" with 
dead and completely unusable operating systems and programs, ask to more jobs 
to finish Samba 4 and expanding Samba 3 to be a FULL analog with WinXP. 
Legacy servers should be updated. Legacy operating systems shuld be updated. 
IMHO, there is nothing to reason to support legacy products.
   With Best Regards.
