Mac OS X

When users attempt to launch a 32-bit app in 10.13.4, it will still launch, but it will do so with a warning message notifying the user that the app will eventually not be compatible with the operating system unless it is updated. This follows the same approach that Apple took with iOS, which completed its sunset of 32-bit app support with iOS 11 last fall.

This is good. I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

Well, if you delete 32 bits from 64 bits, you actually get... 32 bits. I bet these legacy 32 bits are the foundation of the current 64 bits architecture. So you better not ditch it out just because to woke up on a left foot.

Btw, if you're really into going to get rid of such "nuisance", you also better get rid of all these useless emulation layers. Out DOSBox, out Mame, out 32 bits Qemu, out old and retro tech. Welcome all new shiny 64 bits God !
