Hi Martin,

I think you will find that the 32-bit version available will work just
fine under Windows 10. It does for me on my VM.

I don't see such an issue with references to XP and others. People
either still have XP on an older machine or they don't. They're not
likely to seek it out. If they happen to have access to an old computer
somewhere, it might be useful information to know that they can run
1.4.7 on it.
