Upgrading isn't always easy. Once a medical device has its paperwork 
approved by the FDA you are locked in for the life of the device on the 
market. Minimum 5 years, generally 30+. The same is true for many 
military systems and quite a few things in the science world. (When 
performing a controlled 30 year study you cannot swap things out.)

That does not explain how they are able to update Qt without updating 
the OS.

Oh, they could be in that trap I was in. One .deb to install on them 
all, both 32 and 64-bit. Had to do that twice now and it is much fun.
