Just so EVERYONE knows...

Recommended Posts

Virtually ALL software is NOT yet compatible with
Mac OS 10 Catalina...

I think I received 50 emails from developers today
saying not to upgrade, and they are Beta testing...

Yup. My next MacBook Pro 16” will work with nothing.

I thought the adverts said Macs 'just work'...

On a slightly more serious note, I do wonder if it's a deliberate ploy from Apple to deliberately break stuff, forcing people to pay more for upgrades to everything.

ok - I'm done playing the cynic; peace out

It is either that or they don't know how to build an OS that is backwards compatible with anything.

bear in mind that this happens more or less every time there is a MacOS update.

The other problem is that if you buy an new mac then it comes with the latest OS and there is no way to "downgrade" as the firmware/bios doesn't allow it - I use (a lot of!) macs at work and we have to stockpile macs before there is an update because most of our bespoke software breaks when there is an update.

compare this with windows - I reckon I can still run office 2001 on windows 10

Apple basically don't really care about a large proportion of their user base -they look at us a "fringe" minority.

sigh

Window's apps I wrote in the 90's still run fine on Windows 10.

 So will Finale 95.   So does one of my favorite utilities called Icon Snatcher.

Those of you running older software on Win 10... are you using compatibility mode and / or run as administrator? Just curious if you're doing anything special to get the apps to run.

@Scott R. Garrigus I can run CE, and do simple things on it. I did it recently just to see if it would work. However, I have moved on to Audition. When I need to work on waves I use that instead of CE. 

I think in CE2K's instance, it's more a matter of good coding than anything Win10 is doing!! And Audition is really just CE with a new UI. Most of the same things in CE are still in it (well the version of Audition I am using). Such as when I go to import a wav file in, or save as, the dialog windows is the same one that was used in CE2K!
