It works just fine, under Linux, but is no longer supported by the latest version(s) of the OS that came with it.
I guess I am no longer worthy of Apple's latest features, since I am not continuing to send them sufficient money, even
though I paid for each upgrade that would actually work.
Kubuntu does support the machine, including all the latest features, but not Apple.
This is not the way to treat customers who paid full price for a brand-new product. Ten years, I could understand, but not
less than 5.
Plus, they continued to bill me for a service I no longer use, after telling me (in writing) that they would cease to do
I guess I know what their priorities are.
