Not surprising, but 10.7 has been retired from the Mac App Store.

- Hmmm, lets get #boycottappleforlife trending again lol. Seriously though, it's idiotic things like this, the patent suits, the control, etc, that made me decide to never endorse or personally support the purchase of any of their products ever again.Jul 25, 2012
- To buy into the Apple ecosystem is to buy into a regular upgrade schedule. Apple isn't like Microsoft. Microsoft has let people use XP for how long? And isn't support for Windows 7 going to be until 2025 or something? Apple wants you to buy all new hardware every few years. Remember, they're in the hardware business. They don't want you to sit on the same hardware and upgrade software forever, they want you to regularly replace all your Apple hardware with their new shiny hardware. If you don't like that system, don't buy Apple!Jul 25, 2012
- this is the one thing i like about apple. They push you to upgrade.
Being in a business that still uses internet explorer 8 and windows XP drives me insane.
Most companies are only beginning to transition over to windows 7 now. By the time people start switching to windows 8, Windows 10 will probably be out.Jul 25, 2012
- That's great for a consumer-based product. You want consumers to regularly upgrade their hardware. Businesses, however, have a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality. Heck the central server to my location right now is being run off a server 2003 box. They simply don't have the money to regularly upgrade the hardware. If you're talking about a house with 2-3 PCs, it's not expensive to upgrade them. If you're talking about 100s of PCs, you only upgrade when you HAVE to. This is why most businesses do not use Apples. Sure there are exceptions, especially in video editing and what-not, but most businesses use a windows environment. They would go bankrupt trying to upgrade Apple hardware every 4 years,Jul 25, 2012
