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 I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

32 Bit software is not equivalent to 8 trax, or cassettes, but that's cool, if you want to pretend that it is.

Oh, and someone who uses both, Macs maybe slightly more stable than windows, but i hazard a guess that's more likely because of the locked down, semi obsolete hardware in most macs, not the ability to run legacy software. Windows has to run on a very complex and crazy mix of hardware, and there is lots evidence OS X er...sorry, macOS isn't designed to the same standard. It runs well on a very small subset of the pc ecosystem.
