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 I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

I understand, it is good that Apple is giving you a chance to repurchase or just throw away software you've paid for.

I understand, it is good that your car manufacturer is giving you a chance to repurchase or just throw away music you've paid for on cassettes and 8-track tapes.

Stupid Windows users, with their stupid being able to run software from 10 years ago.

Stupid Mac users, with their valuing performance, stability, security, and maintainability over the ability to run Jurassic apps.
