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 I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

Performance? Games typically end up with higher system requirements under macOS. Stability-wise there's no diff between OSes for a long time (and when there was a difference, MacOS was often worse than Windows). And as for security... RDF is strong with you, you already forgot howjust last year macOS provided full password hint or allowed admin logins without a password? Windows wasn't nearly as bad security-wise since the times of 9x (and MacOS Classic...)
And Apple had untill few months ago exclusively only a cruft of a filesystem, still has it as only option for HDDs...
Also curious how you "forgot" about iTunes bloatware.
