I think that if we really want old hardware to keep working for us, we need to stop expecting Apple to keep supporting it and start expecting the developer community outside of Apple to.
Kudos to Cameron Kaiser for developing TenFourFox (Firefox 10 ported to G3, G4, and G5 Macs) and Classilla (Mozilla ported to Mac OS 9). We need more developers like him to keep supporting our hardware. It is people like him – not Apple – that will keep our machines going long after Apple drops them.
Totally agree with Chris Carson on his recent post on LowEndMac. Read it and let me know what you think!
