This is one of the reasons, having been given a swanky, new 2018 Mac Mini
I have kept hold of my Polycarbonate iMac running Mac OS 107 and
a Polycarbonate PPC iMac running MacOS 10.4, 10.5 and "Classic".

"consistent scientific HIG again" . . . "scientific" . . . is not a word 
I would use about galloping subjectivity.


"a bit on the obsessive control, hard-on-the-eye schemes, and planned 
obsolescence" Yes, these are disgusting.
Not convinced about "hard-on-the-eye schemes" as they seem to be all 
over the place.


I have a 20 year old Pentium running Xubuntu Linux 18.04 merrily 
chuntering away in my school.


That machine could not cope with Windows XP, and, needless-to-say, it is 
a non-Macintosh machine.


So, as far as planned obsolescence goes I honestly don't see much 
difference between Apple
and Microsoft there beyond the fact that Apple have tied their OS to 
their machines which means they

really have got your arm round your back if you want their OS.

My remarks as to Windows being shoddy was in respect of its 
vulnerability to attack and viruses.


What i fail to understand is why there has not been a greater adoption 
of desktop versions
of Linux, as most Linux versions offer 32-bit versions, PPC versions and 
all sorts of possibilities that

probably go beyond most people's conception of obsolescence.

So the only scary thing about Apple doing something potentially 
problematic is merely that it might make someone with shaky faith 
consider Microsoft? That seems to overlook the tiny step of 
considering the potentially problematic thing itself!


The Apple evangelism "cult" included memes using blackhat PR tricks 
and cognitive hacks. It's too fun to resist - go ahead and try the 
shoe on the other foot for once:


"Ah, having trouble with your Mac again? Yeah, that's what I love 
about Windows - everything just works!" :D


Which is very often true in either direction, depending on the 
particular trouble being experienced. In reality each OS has its 
annoyances. Personally I have no dog in the race - I started with 
Mac-first dev because of their excellent HIG research and principles 
which they would later abandon. Then switched to Win-first dev when 
Apple fled that previous research for a more "lickable" look, causing 
Windows UI to became more efficient and user-friendly for my own 
computing.


If Apple were to embrace consistent scientific HIG again and let up a 
bit on the obsessive control, hard-on-the-eye schemes, and planned 
obsolescence, I'd be tempted to go back to Mac-first. I use both 
Operating Systems and find an equal amount of enjoyment in providing 
solutions for both!


BTW, I've already seen an LC app undergo notarization successfully, so 
not to worry; there will be a system in place for this particular 
hurdle just as with everything else.

If we limit our view of computing to desktop OSes, that's definitely true.

Microsoft had a 92% market share before more than a dozen jurisdictions
around the world found them guilty of multiple antitrust violations. 
Now after all these years of legal "remedies" from those trials, Windows 
still has an 86% share.


This may be a cautionary tale as we look ahead at new laws being 
considered to protect people from the de facto monopolies of the 
Information Industrial Complex, the big five that control nearly 
everything in the infosphere:  Facebook, Twitter, Google, Apple, and Amazon.


While we wait for laws to catch up to modern business, and reflect on 
the self-evident inadequacy of existing antitrust laws, let's step 
outside the desktop to look at the scope of modern computing today:


Phones w/Android Linux: 82%
Tablets w/Android Linux: 73%
Embedded systems w/Linux: ~80+%
Servers w/Linux: ~60+%
Top 500 supercomputers w/Linux: 99%

On the desktop, both Linux and Apple are niche players in a 
Microsoft-dominated world.


But beyond the desktop, Linux has become the de facto standard of modern 
computing.


If nothing else, being a developer in the 21st century increasingly 
means building client-server systems.  Familiarity with Linux is a 
valuable skillset that enables cloud services for your client software 
regardless which OSes those clients run on.


There's a reason Apple had a booth at the SoCal Linux Expo: hiring. They 
sell Macs snd iPhones to access data and services run on Linux server farms.


And the most popular OS on Microsoft Azure?  Ubuntu, of course.

All networks can get faster, but I'm with Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols

EFF has a similar view:

"Enough of the 5G Hype"
https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/02/enough-5g-hype

existing devices as well as the someday-soon-no-really 5G access points:


"The U.S. Desperately Needs a 'Fiber for All' Plan"
https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/03/us-desperately-needs-fiber-all-plan 





With or without infrastructure improvements, I expect mobile to 
remain a steady growth segment.  But by "steady" I mean only slightly 
more than half of Internet traffic, with laptops being most of the 
remainder.


If Job's metaphor of the "post-PC" era means phones are cars and 
laptops are trucks, observe that the most popular auto form factor in 
the US is the SUV - effectively, a truck. :)


We're now a decade into the "post-PC" era, and Apple stills sells 
Macs. Lots of them.  More than iPads, which have leveled off to 
negative growth.


It's not just developers who need full computers.  It's everyone who

On Mac OS X it´s possible to sign Windows apps.  You´ll need a 
CodeSigningCertificate and the free  software osslsigncode.
I am not sure, that the other way (signing Mac OS X apps under Windows) is 
possible. At least i´ve never heard of a way.

The problem is that the Standalone must be code signed first, before it 
can be submitted to Apple for notarization. I suppose LiveCode could 
offer some fields in the standalone builder for you to fill in the path 
to your cert and they could detect if Xcode is installed and then do a 
shell() to call codesign and then some more fields for you Apple 
Developer ID sign in and then submit it to Apple.


It kind of defeats one of the great values of LiveCode which has been 
cross-platform development as more and more platform specific stuff gets 
attached.


I personally develop on Windows and build for OSX and Windows, but then 
I need to move the OSX app to OSX for code signing. I would love to see 
a feature where you could install your certs into LiveCode for each 
platform and it would cross-platform build AND code sign each standalone 
for you.


Of course this may all be a mute point if you believe the "industry 
analysts" that say that 5G networks will kill the market for local 
applications whether for iOS, Android, or desktop OSes and finally web 
app will be fast enough :-)

If you plan to distribute in the App Store, the security keys must be
in place before the app is submitted for normal review. If you will be
distributing privately, users with newer versions of OSX may not be
able to launch the app if is not secured. If you already have apps in
the App Store they won't be affected.


While I'm not happy with the general direction Apple is taking with
OSX, their main PR lately has been how much more secure the OS is
