> Windows doesn't even have a standard driver-ABI anyway

It does to a very significant degree. Windows 7 drivers from 10 years ago still work today with Windows 10. Windows 95 user software from 23 years ago will still work today in Windows 10. Microsoft cares strongly about maintaining compatibility and only removes functionality when necessary.
