I recall the panic when Vista came out and many of the older printers wouldn't work on Vista.
Many people blamed Windows - and not the printer manufacturer's who decided not to provide Vista drivers for their printers.
IMO it was a ploy by the printer manufacturer's to boost sales - making everyone get a new printer if they wanted to run Windows Vista.
Also, right around that time printers started to become "throw-away" items - it was cheaper to buy a new one than it was to get the old one fixed.
There were also lot's of driver problems when upgrading to Win8.1 - although the problems weren't as obvious as they were in Vista
Microsoft spends a lot of time and money on ensuring backwards compatibility with each version of Windows.
Most stuff will run on Win10 - I've only encountered a few drivers that don't work on it.
