How much work Microsoft puts into ensuring backwards compatibility

From the recent installment of Joel on Software, which is really on something else but starts with a section on Microsoft and backwards compatibility which I'm finding a fascinating read. (It's where he describes the "Raymond Chen camp" at Microsoft.)

Make sure you read the two entries in the "The Old New Thing" blog that Joel linked to as well.
