Unfortunately, projects usually drop support not for fun but because a framework/tool no longer support the OS or sometimes because it gets annoying to support the particular old needs of an OS. Best case scenario it is a question of dealing with idiosyncratic bugs and worst case scenario it is a quest for backporting frameworks before even touching the main project.

I had a similar reaction with MuseScore that stopped PPC with 1.2 and the 2.0 source was not very noob friendly (without being acquainted with how the last supported one builds + some luck as to why they stopped...

Yet, it is a seductive prospect to breathe life in an FOSS project on our PPC machines... Maybe there should be a crash course for that (to help spread the ways to get onboard such endeavour without facing a gigantic frustration wall :p).

Or sometimes programmer updates computer that not support OS :) Or I know one case when programmer didn't have beta tester to older OS version, although he could compile to it, when asked.

Of course it's hard continue to newest version, but how about update 1.0 to 1.1 or only add something that programmer wants.
