It is probably a matter of quality assurance. For critical systems you
must have a validated and verified system. Making any change to such a
system means the validation and verification must be re-done, and it
can be a matter of thousands of man-hours.

I work with testing of medical equipment and I know plenty of medical
systems that are still running Win2k or even NT 3.5 due to this.
