The shorter span between editions meant that unless Apple extended its support lifecycle, Lion would have fallen off the list about two years after its July launch. None of this would be noteworthy if Apple, like Microsoft and a host of other major software vendors, clearly spelled out its support policies.
But Apple doesn't, leaving users to guess about when their operating systems will fall off support. With Snow Leopard's retirement, 1 in 5 Macs are running an operating system that could be compromised because of unpatched vulnerabilities.
Snow Leopard users have given many reasons for hanging on, including some identical to those expressed by Windows XP customers: Snow Leopard, while requiring a Mac with an Intel processor, was the latest edition able to run the Rosetta translation utility, and thus launch PowerPC software. Additionally, Snow Leopard was the final version able to run on Macs equipped with bit Intel processors, making it impossible for owners of some older machines to upgrade beyond OS X The one comfort in Tuesday's updates was that it looked like Apple will continue to support Lion and Mountain Lion a while longer, even though it has offered those users a free upgrade to Mavericks.
Yesterday's security updates patched 21 vulnerabilities in Lion, 26 in Mountain Lion. In December, Storms bet that Lion and Mountain Lion had been retired when Apple did not issue security updates for those two editions, even as it fixed a handful of flaws in Mavericks.
