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 I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.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, still running a 2007 Via C7-Windows XP based computer just right now because it have the drivers for my 2002 scanner installed on.

Do you really imagine things would go running out of their legacy usage because there is 64 bits and blocked updates up there ?

I'm sorry people threw in bugs and security issues in the first place then asking me to update my whole system at my full expense to cover their ass.

Old tech still works like they were intended to, people still play with original NES and get fun from it. I see no point at playing this planned obsolescence thing.
