In the history books, you could call today the official beginning of the end. Today really marks the end of the Macintosh as an independent computing platform.
I take the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update for a spin… on a Mac Pro from 2008.

Next year, Apple will begin adding 2012-era MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models to its Vintage and Obsolete list. The first wave will happen in June, 2017.
