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 I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

'Heck, one of many reasons I prefer Linux over Windows is that I can still run the 16-bit Windows 3.x games'

You're certainly free to use legacy equipment for as long as you like. However, the rest of the world is under no obligation to accommodate you.
