Apple has not as yet officially announced the end of support for its older Apple Snow Leopard operating system, but the latest update which was released for Mavericks OS X 10.9 together with its two predecessors, Mountain Lion 10.8 and Lion 10.7.
Indicate that Apple maybe looking to move away from continuing support for the four year old Snow Leopard OS X 10.6 operating system, which was originally launched back in August 2009.
The latest update rolled out by Apple secured a major security exploit for the latest three Mac operating systems, which also exists in the older Snow Leopard OS X 10.6 software as well yet received no update to help fix the exploit for users.
Now that Mac users can upgrade directly to the latest version for free directly from Snow Leopard, Apple looks as though it’s taking the opportunity to not follow Microsoft support system which has become a enduring task for the company. Who is still supporting old operating system’s such as Windows XP which Microsoft first launched way back on October 25th 2001.
So if you have a Mac system running the older Snow Leopard OS X 10.6 operating system now might be a good time to consider upgrading to the latest Mavericks OS X 10.9 version for free and plug any security exploits that still might be available in the OS for unwanted guests to take advantage of.
