Now everything is out in the open. So M$ would have to address it. Else just the blackhats would be the ones silently creating the exploits. Blackhats buy off the code well before any leaks. It is good now that the whitehats can also work on it.

It's not obsolete, some machines depend on legacy OS to run, switching to new OS means replacing the entire machinery and the cost runs into 5 to 6 digits or even more.

Anyone seen anything in the leaked XP/2003 source that relates to playback of DVDs (and especially anything related to DVD DRM and copy protection) or is that not in the leaked sources?

Well, seems to me that MS is messing around with Github too much.

Agreed... some enterprise systems take decades to switch. Never completely obsolete, even if not officially supported.
