Apple phasing out 32-bit support - Tell Apple

John Alfred

Apple hasn't been told about BBC BASIC ? Why not?
Is it a mickey mouse language? Certainly not.

Tell them now, please, Richard.

Apple listens. They may not respond as one likes, but they listen.

As I said in an earlier message, Apple are forcing programmers to move to 64-bit code not (primarily) for technical reasons but as company policy.  They have no interest in the degree of inconvenience that it will cause.  The reason I assumed your comment was a joke was the implication that Apple might care about a program that they have never heard of, written by a private individual, and of which there is not a single user on their platform (so far as I'm aware); of course they don't.  Apple rarely take notice even of international corporations or governments!
