Another excuse for bloat! and feeding the accelerating cycle ... 1. Software we don't need and requiring hardware that hasn't yet been made. 2. The new hardware will then need new software that hasn't been developed : return to step one. But there is no profit in simply perfecting the existing. The system is driven by sales. Sales require new product, not product updates/ patches. And, μ$oft's philosophy has always been "new bells and whistles", not refinement/perfection of the existing.
