Where did I say it had to have all today's features 20 years ago? If it did, what would Microsoft be doing today?
I am working with personal and not so personal computers well before Windows was ever conceived. Still have somewhere floppies with Windows 1.x etc.
I think Microsoft might try to be less lazy and arrogant, like ignoring any architecture other than Intel. I also think, that Microsoft are desperately trying to fix this situation with Windows 8. There are some good things in Windows 8, progressive. There are however some absurd and weird things in Windows 8, considering it's 2012 now. Microsoft may or may not have the resources, the vision or the will to do things right. Not my problem, as I said it number of times.
