IIRC some base data came from TRW and USAF, some results published as: Software Engineering Economics, Barry W. Boehm, PH, 1981 and latterly at USC CSE: Software Cost Estimation with COCOMO II, Barry W. Boehm, PH, 2000 also and some others have similar interests.
Debt Management always jumps on any technology that claims 10x cost reductions, but never estimate costs for existing technology and set budgets for newer technology at 10% of estimate.

MS is a business focused on marketing: they will lose market cred and share more quickly if they don't show they're doing something, so they're issuing more patches, but that leads to new boundary conditions, which require more patches. They need to redevelop new versions from scratch with a customer security focus, but their design goals seem to be to protect their own profits, and those of media content providers, and further limit their customers' rights, not improve their customers' security. They believe they have a monopoly on their customer base, and their marketing seems very capable of selling software at higher prices and profit margins. Remember the reports of Windows 95 buyers who didn't even own a computer?
