Confirm comment report request

I would like to see software written to use features of the latest OS and if you are not using it, either you load a module to provide similar functionality, or else features of the program disapear.

If the software fails because of bugs in older versions of the OS then it's fair to not to work around them.

it is also fair for writers not to have to be expectected to explicitly test apps on old OSes.

(There are several newish apps that work fine on OS 3.1 despite warnings to the contrary)

If new software is still available for old machines, (with reduced function where required), then those who inherit old systems will be far more likely to give it a try.
