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 I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

Oh I agree with you. In fact I see little to no reason to use a Mac at all. ;) I was just giving an example of why you'd want to keep 32bit around.

To be fair, I do use Linux for gaming where I can. Simply because I have the hardware, where you can't actually get game-worthy hardware for macOS.

If you're a gamer, then Mac is clearly not the platform of choice. But if you're a developer, it's a great platform. I was surprised at how many of my coworkers in aerospace had moved to Mac (not just me!).
