This, you want a fresh install of everything.
You then transfer all of your important files.
Takes a little work but well worth it.

Side story - My first work project fresh out of college was writing an 8-bit 8080 CPU emulator that ran on a 16-bit 8086 processor, to run CP/M-80 applications. The 8086 had 4 times the processing speed of the 8080, and even with the emulator overhead the apps ran faster emulated than they did native. Apps have come a long way since then, and I have my doubts on the performance increase between the Intel processors and ARM. Long story short, my vote would be for a Rosetta-type translator for running iOS apps on the Mac, since I don't see it as something that I need when I can just pick up an iPhone to run those apps.

Out of curiosity, did they finally break down and promise a touchscreen interface on the Mac?



I'm going through the same grief with my new 16" MBP. I have an eclectic collection of 32-bit device drivers and specialty software that is no longer available and was never compiled for 64-bit, and need to scrounge around the Internet looking for new software to do those same tasks.

It looks like Apple is herding Mac users over a cliff towards the post-PC and post-Mac era.....


Ah the old days. Iím sure most wonít understand what was said but I do!
They havenít said anything about touch screen, I donít predict it as that would undercut their tablets.
You know Apple, you live by their rules. They did it before, theyíll do it again.
I miss Steve Jobs.

I will only own a Mac. But even they can slow up a bit with time. A friend turned me on to Onxy and I run it every couple months which speeds it up. It's free to use. You might check it out.
