I'm surprised that the Roku 3600 remote doesn't work with the Roku 3500. Same technology, no?
No it is not, and this is why Roku needs to provide documentation on which devices are no longer supported, a list of remotes for devices and which are NLA or unsupported.
It's independent of any need to know which version of windows someone is running, we all can adapt with or without Roku, I was doing fine before Roku arrived on the scene and will continue to do so after Roku has long gone.
