Reading about Google dropping support for the Pixel 3 phone after 3 years - no more OS updates - and it just reminded me of when Linux dropped support for the 386.

After 21 years.

486 is still supported.

@polychrome Well, this confirms why my Android updates always inevitably seems to break things in the phone. I had suspected, but hadn't actually known, that they were planning on cancelling support for the Pixel 3. Reading this confirms my suspicions.


@polychrome Android is the worst ever when it comes to this, they are basically disposable. Even Apple which is known for being money hungry as hell and dirty with their business keeps their phones supported with updates for 5-6 years
