Try to work with Microsoft corporate sales.  You’re opinion will change.

This is all because Apple is moving away from dependence on Intel chips, no other reason. This was a long time in coming.

There are a number of good reasons to do so. They have been telling developers to update for years, it is the fault of developers if they still haven’t updated. In my case there were no apps that were a problem for me that weren’t updated soon after the new OS came out.

This Apple goes ARM is a stupid rumor, it hurts my brain everytime i read it.
Apple has nothing to ever drive the iMacPro and MacPro with ARM. For emulation they would need twice the performance and twice the performance per core to match the highspeed Intel Chips. A13 was no real speed improvement over A12 so they did not show benchmarks. They have hit the limit. ARM is still a factor 10x away from being competitive with Intel on high end Workstations. ARM doesn’t scale, all the server attempts have proven this over and over in the last 15 years. And i’m not even talking about the laughable IO performance of the Apple ARM chipsets. Good enough for a phone but not a workstation or a high end notebook with high end graphics card.

So many crazy conspiracy people without knowledge of fundamental system architecture.

Well, they might not replace Intel altogether, but simply supplement them for certain features:

In any case, I think the idea that they are doing this just to get profits from upgrade fees is even more absurd…. For a number of reasons, but mostly because very few people I know had any apps that needed paid upgrades.

Thanks for the warning about Catalina.

I am a happy owner of a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M. Now I found this info on their website (https://www.fujitsu.com/global/support/products/computing/peripheral/scanners/scansnap/faq/s1500-catalina.html):

>ScanSnap S1500/S1500M Compatibility Status With macOS 10.15 Catalina:
>The ScanSnap software (*) is not available on macOS 10.15 Catalina. To keep using your ScanSnap, use it on the current version of macOS. When you >update your macOS, please consider purchasing a ScanSnap that is currently available.
>Details
>The ScanSnap software (*) is not available on the macOS as it does not support any 32-bit applications.(No further updates will be provided to the ScanSnap software.)
>If you will use macOS 10.13 or earlier, you can keep using ScanSnap S1500/S1500M on the OS.
>When you use macOS 10.14 or later, please consider purchasing a ScanSnap that is currently available.

These things make me angry ...
