Enable Mac to Windows File Sharing in Mac OS X
It is a Xeon based on the Core 2 Quad lineup. Your processor supports 64 Bit Operating systems but the firmware under it is 32bit. Google a guide and start reading. Michael, you can install Yosemite on your machine but it will require some workarounds. Do a search for pikes yosemite installer and you will be fine as long as you can follow the instructions. Good luck! I am still using snow leopard Was wondering why there were plenty of spinning beach-balls on safari, and google messages of no longer supporting this browser.
Starting to get concerned , but not realising the lack of support. That is pretty shocking, not to mention downright stupid , and thoughtless behaviour from Apple..
I use linux on a separate machine already. You can get newer versions of firefox and chrome for these old versions of OS X. Odd that they would quit supporting old hardware, though, really. Oh well, sticking with I think the article is spot on in that they keep itunes updated because they have a financial incentive to do so. And your point further exemplifies that. I have a MBP mid , I recently installed Yosemite but it does not seem to work, it would show a progress bar that does not complete and the mbp does not boot to its desktop.

Leave it going, first boot it is doing some crazy disk check, yes it looks like the machine has crashed. Try leaving it overnight. My Lion is still useful for running my printer and scanner in my private network. So I have a iMac. I am having issues with it not wanting to update to Yosemite nor does it want to update my Publisher Plus application. Thanks for the post; it really helped me understand what is happening with support for my laptop, a mid Macbook.

I guess its time to face the future and retire the trusty little black Macbook. Ironically, right now it dual boots windows 8. If your seven-plus year old Mac is still useful, OK, keep using it. All docs, apps and settings come over seamlessly. You should not mislead people into thinking their older incompatible applications will move over to new OS platforms and hardware that is not necessarily compatible.
Many 3rd party apps will have to be upgrades as will programs like Disk Warrior for the 64 bit environments. A brand-new OS may receive security updates, yes, but it also represents an unknown that will be subject to exploitation.

IMO, as long as there are antivirus programs that run in Snow Leopard, Adobe Flash upgrades and browser upgrades, Snow Leopard is about as secure as anything else. Has Apple published anything to suggest otherwise?

Finally, if Apple no longer intends to release updates for Snow Leopard why are they still selling retail copies? My concern with this rush to speculation is that it will essentially push Apple to drop Snow Leopard and similarly-aged hardware that much sooner. Apple needs to issue security updates at least as long as is customary in the Windows world.
Apple products come at a premium, for one, and second more and more people are updating smaller format electronics like tablets and smartphones much faster than desktop systems or all-in-ones. Given the trend to hang on to desktops and even laptops longer than was once the case, if anything Apple and associated developers should prepare for supporting these systems longer because consumers are less likely to upgrade desktop Macs and PCs every two years like they did back in the s and early s.
Now that the pace of desktop system upgrades has slowed down, so too should the rush to ditch former operating systems and hardware. Apple ought to take typical usage and upgrade patterns into account when deciding what OS systems and hardware to relegate to legacy status. Five year old hardware is indeed fast, depending on what you bought originally. Maybe you should try however futile it might or might not be to encourage Apple to consider this as compatibility of older hardware. But as for software maintenance, it all has a life cycle and that is a different topic entirely.
Lastly, before I comment on some of the things you write, I want to say: And do you really think Apple sees everything, that they put serious security flaws in on purpose? If not, then how do you expect them to know when to publish this supposed proof?
All software has an EOL whether official or not. It is unreasonable to expect programmers to maintain all software they ever supported because it is impractical to do so as a programmer who cares about quality or even who want to do more than just do programming. Yes, that means even software that is free and open source anyone can change it has an end of life. Unless you want them to stop releasing new major versions of the OS then this is how it is. To not make new releases makes zero sense at all levels, though, unless it is going to be a discontinued line of products.
Thanks for the article. To be honest. You are dramatizing and exaggerating my friend. I use Leopard and Snow leopard still a lot without a problem.
