I don't really know, but past experience would indicate that debian (at
least) is about the last distro to drop support for any old hardware
[1]. After all, once installed you could still use the old software in
it's current state in a trusted environment.

We still use ms-dos computers in our lab (to control certain hardware),
but of course these computers are not running up-to-date software and
they are not connected to the internet.
