But that doesn't just bring advantages. Because although the performance has made a massive leap and the efficiency of the systems has increased at the same time, there are compatibility problems with some programs. Some apps do not work at all on the new Macs with ARM chip architecture, others only via Apple's "Rosetta 2" feature. A few are already available natively and do not need emulation. You can find out in which category which apps can be classified with two websites.

      Thanks for the addition! Do you have a link for that? I found it difficult to google the software because of the clumsy name. Just too many results. : D

    I just sent a comment about the (newly installed) app, but I'm not sure whether it has arrived ... I didn't get an email about it either.
