Is prism using legacy code?

We are using prism for developing WPF applications. The 4.1 version supports only windows 7 and windows server 2008 as per the following link

This begs a question. As far as I know specific operating system support is only required for assemblies with legacy code. If the assembly is completely written in .NET it just need the .NET frame work support as this itself is a "virtual machine".

If this is true is prism contains legacy code?

Hi,

Based on my understanding, Prism 4.1 was developed using the .NET 4.0 and Silverlight 5 framework and, as far as I know, it should not contain any "legacy code" for an specific operating system. Also, in the Downloads page you can find that no specific operating system is listed among the prerequisites list.

If you wish to check Prism's source code in detail, you can find it included in the releases provided in the Downloads page or you can obtain it from the Source Code page.
