Snow Leopard waves goodbye to support?

Gregg Keizer for Computer World:  Apple retires Snow Leopard from support, leaves 1 in 5 Macs vulnerable to attacks. Well, Apple has never had Microsoft’s patience with the upgrading of obsolescent operating systems, even though upgrades are often highly dependent on hardware suitability.

  • Windows XP: released 2001, support ending in April 2014.
  • Snow Leopard: released 2009…

Just saying. Some would argue that maintaining XP for so long has meant that people haven’t been upgrading to more secure systems.

  1. Although Mac users are 7.66% compared with 90.74% compared with Windows users around the world, 1 out of 5 users being left vulnerable is still a staggering number of users.

    The numbers above were from: http://www.netmarketshare.com

    Where did you find the numbers for Mac versions specifically David? Great information and thoughts!
