And for the company still using 16 bit systems, well that is still the fault of MS not driving the market enough in the good direction. It's not hard to see that they prefer profit over innovation.
They didn't drop it in Windows 7. They dropped it in every single 64-bit version of Windows they have ever made (including the IA64 versions of Windows as well, but that's a completely different story anyway).

We are talking about a company still SUPPORTING 16 bits system, not a lone 16 bits system still running in a random restaurant/shop somewhere that were stopped being supported for the past 15 years.
But you are wrong, since Microsoft does not support 16-bit and has not for many years. Just because 16-bit software works in their OS doesn't mean it is being actively supported.
