When counting up MS Windows versions we should not count the ones that
failed in the marketplace. Windows 2000 was a success. Windows
Millenium was a failure and was not widely used. Windows XP was a big
success. Windows Vista did not sell well except as a preinstalled
system on new or refurbished computers. Windows 7 appears to be
another big success.
I suggest that Scribus developers concentrate on Windows XP and
Windows 7. That is where the bulk of Windows users are. If a Vista
user wants to become a Scribus user then they should be encouraged to
upgrade to Windows 7. That will be beneficial to them in many ways
beyond just hosting Scribus.
Commercial users of Windows resisted pleas to upgrade(?) to Vista.
Many bought new computers with Vista on preinstalled and refitted those
computers to Windows XP for compatibility and ease of inhouse support.
That is the real world. Dropping XP support and testing but retaining
Vista support is a bad idea.
