    No, for the most part, those are the ones that aren't tested to work with newer versions of the OS, not that they can't.

    But a few of those older progs that no longer work, but should, used a DRM system that doesn't run on later versions of the OS. A simple patch by the vendor is all it would need. It's the vendor's fault, not Apple's, in those cases.

    Ah -- once again, DRM making things harder for the consumer. Imagine that. :banghead:

    I agree with you 100% there. I hate DRM.
