I remember a story on the news how people were buying Windows 95 despite not even owning a PC.

I loved the old Mac OS. Fuck Steve Jobs for killing it off, OSX will always be shit.

don't blame yourself, most everyone in the early 2000's was fine with bright colors, rounded and translucent plastics, and gradients on everything

I was only in middle school at the time, but I can't imagine businesses looking at this and thinking it would be appropriate. I imagine that's why my dad's company stuck with 2000 for a few years before finally caving in.

Nah. It's rarely an aesthetics decision. It's usually IT not wanting to/being incapable of doing the upgrade(s), loss of compatibility with software deploys (whole company uses X, new OS won't run X and makers of X will not be patching soon), and bean counters being short-sighted about the upfront cost of upgrading vs. cost of maintaining legacy.
