Question

Why would more advanced computers be unable to run less advanced programs?  Wouldn’t it make more sense for more efficient and advanced computers to run less advanced programs more efficiently?

I’m just sayin’.

  1. In most cases it is the applications and not the computer’s operating system that is the problem. Programs are written with certain OS’s in mind and are incompatible with a newer OS.

    You should try googling any error messages to see if other people are having issues and what they have done to fix their problems. Perhaps there is a patch. Or, worst case, perhaps you’ll need a newer version of the software.

  2. I’m a huge fan of backward compatibility. I can understand why companies DON’T do it…$$ for one. But I think it is a HUGE service to customers.

    I love Nintendo for making the Wii play GameCube games, for example.
