  35. Backwards Compatibility & User Trust
    • The leftover code in WordPress to retain backwards
    compatibility doesn’t slow it down
    • If you’re using latest techniques, none of those code even run
    • The only thing it does is basically take up bytes of space on
    your hardisk
    • With all that however, knowing that you will be able to
    upgrade safely creates a strong user trust.
    • This trust is the basis of the growth of WordPress
