I noticed that my oldest Mac is the first MacBook to get the Core *2* Duo, from late '06. So, a 5 year old machine will still be able to run the very latest OS, which isn't too bad in my opinion. In comparison, a 5 year old PC would struggle, at best, to digest Windows 7.
If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention...
yeah, it looks as though 32-bit CPUs are history. Along with Rosetta (which is gonna hurt, I still have multiple older apps which will never be updated 'cause the vendors are either bust or no longer interested) and Java. Although Java can be downloaded if necessary.
It also seems as if OS X Server, as a separate product, is toast. As I understand it, Server features will now be part of the standard install. Is the world really ready for a few million amateur UNIX server admins roaming loose? 'Cause that's want's gonna happen when the Lion roars.
