Shoot self in the leg.

No, better make that both legs.

Far be it from me to speak on Microsoft's behalf, but perhaps they just figured anyone still on MSWin7 by then is either finishing up a migration, or simply not interested in migrating at all. And anyone in the second group isn't likely to be rushing out to get a newer MSOffice version either. So they're effectively cutting off a customer base that's not likely to buy newer product (from MS at least) anyway. Some may be insistently hanging onto old kit, others may have joyously made the L&L Upgrade (Linux & LibreOffice)
