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 I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

ironically Office on the Mac is 64bit, like windows, i think legacy and bad code which really holds back 64bit office. Take for example Microsoft's own platforms such as GP and CRM, all recommendations are for 32bit office due to compatibility problems using Microsoft Office on Microsoft Windows Client, connecting to Microsoft GP which in turn is running on Microsoft Windows Server and a Microsoft SQL Server back end.
