    Battlestations Midway and Pacific, Civ IV, Simcity 4, Mini Ninjas, geez. Just about my entire Snow Leopard library is dead. :(

    Glad my 2011 imac can't be upgraded to Catalina. Kind of sick of Apple anyway. Won't ever buy their products again.

      Even if you had the option, it's not like Apple forces updates the same way Microsoft does. You could stay back on Mojave as long as you want.

        Do they still provide updates? Even just security updates?

          They don't seem to have any publicly-visible policy on that. But (this is a bit outdated now) it seems like they average about 40 months per version.

      I'm convinced enough about their direction (quality, environmentalism and user privacy) that I'm replacing my odd assortments of Windowses and Linuxes and some irritating misc hardware with Apple...
