Still no updates for Snow Leopard...

Never mind that! My Apple Lisa hasn't had an update for years! I can't believe Apple's planned discontinuing cycle -- they stop supporting old products so we're forced to buy/upgrade to the latest and greatest.

It's not good enough, Apple. How dare you stop supporting an OS that's 4 generations old. This wouldn't have happened if Steve was here -- well, excluding when Panther was no longer supported when Leopard came out -- and PPC code being dropped when SL was released -- but except for that ...

Tim Crook, more like! Huh? Am I right? Huh?

It also came out less than 5 years ago. Windows 7 came out the same year and is still being updated.

On top of that, Apple is still selling Snow Leopard. You can buy the DVD for $20. I think with $100 billion in the bank, they can afford to support OS X for as long as Microsoft supports Windows. (Maybe not as long as XP, though. I doubt anyone is using 10.1 this year.)

How about that: they (apparently) dropped support for a product that is still being sold!

http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573Z/A/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard

Huh, reads somewhat different now, no?

Second, let's take Apple's Vista out of the equation! Mountain Lion is merely a badly needed fix for the Lion mess, so it doesn't really count as a new product either. Or only 1/2 as such. Mavericks is getting close to Snow Leopard again (in terms of network reliability and overall performance), while gradually adding features Apple has taken away (local sync, Save As... the later already having been re-enabled in some later ML release...).

So all in all, let's agree on "Snow Leopard being just the previous release to Mavericks", shall we?

Third, Snow Leopard was released in August 28, 2009 - so that makes it only a 5 years old OS! Hardly a long time span for an OS!

Edit: Yes, I know that SL was not affected by the Triple-Handshake, so the claim that SL support is somewhat shaky - I am just replying to the reactions on that claim.

Listen SL tards: upgrading is going to take a modicum of effort. You may have to find some alternative software that's actually supported and you may have to abandon some of your old hardware. [bla bla bla]

My Dad is one such user....

Ah, okay, I understand: we are talking about your family's computers with some cheap 400$ scanners etc.

Why don't you follow your own advice and "just move on - nothing to see (or say) here...".

You know, I never know. Snow Leopard users are a stubborn bunch.

Damn right! Your father and I are soul mates on this issue.

All of your points about hardware/software costs are valid - but belong to a generation of people who do not value money.

If I paid a lot of money for some hardware, and it still does the job I bought it for, why the heck should I spend more money on an upgrade that I don't need?

As for software, all of mine does its job - with no extra cost, simply to have the latest and greatest. Rosetta is essential to that state of nirvana.

But you left out the main reason why so many of us stubborn old codgers refuse to unnecessarily upgrade to a newer OS - MAS!

Not going in the sheep pen. Not registering with Apple (I never register hardware). Not giving my personal details, just so I can download a FREE product.

Wolverines for ever!

Is it me or are Apple becoming a little more verbose and descriptive with their security patch notes? Good to see what specifically is being fixed rather than the historically ambiguous 'stuff'.
