On the whole ‘Apple dropping Snow Leopard from support’ thing

512 Pixels:

Apple on Tuesday made it clear that it will no longer patch OS X 10.6, aka Snow Leopard, when it again declined to offer a security update for the four-and-a-half-year-old operating system.

As Apple issued an update for Mavericks, or OS X 10.9, as well as for its two predecessors, Mountain Lion (10.8) and Lion (10.7), Apple had nothing for Snow Leopard or its owners yesterday.

Keizer fails to mention that Snow Leopard wasn’t affected by Apple’s goto fail; bug, but hey, I’m not a security reporter.

Stephen Hackett sets the record straight on the retirement of Snow Leopard.
