Sadly, this is not always possible.  There are times where someone else
decides what hardware and such will be used or when older hardware
cannot be upgrade for some reason or another.  In that sense, your
suggestion isn't a "real answer", but rather an answer that depends upon
a reality that does not exist for everyone.

You make continuous decisions about what to buy, what to use, and what to support. I guess it's just easier to complain that the free OS isn't supporting the unsupported proprietary stuff well enough.

But again, unless you're just complaining for the sake of complaining, you can simply run an old binary to support the old junk.
