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 I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

But Google actually does this and, and Thom you complained the other day how much a mess it is.

I really hope that now that we have meltdown and scepre, there is a chance to reinvigorate the x64 space with new noncompatible OSs in a few years so we can buy new shiny things instead of our i5s and i7s.
