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 I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

And Old Relational DB Manager from Lotus. I Won't Learn another package, for the now and then, very casual need.

Setting up a quick Win7 32bits partition image over SSD. (Won't go virtual on DB jobs). Handling indexes and tables over RAM disk, fast.

Mind, what remains of, my main asset. Hardly working on not to repeat myself.

Suspecting of lots of 16bits blocks impeding the carry of this legacy to Win10.
