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 I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

An unfortunate side effect of this is that it will kill off the last version of the Adobe Creative Suite that was available for "one off purchase" rather than Adobe's horrid rent-to-use subscription software basis. Lots of people are still using CS6 since it works fine -- it'll be sad for MacOS to kill this off.
