when you say "insecure" what do you exactly mean? I have a computer that I still use with Mavericks on. I used it happily because since I quit windows in 2002 I didn't have to worry about bugs, viruses, spyware, or being hacked by .exe files. You are making me worry.There are extremely severe security implications with using Snow Leopard, even Mavericks on a modern system. You may not know it or you may turn a blind eye to it, but there are. The way Apple's security model works is that if you aren't on the latest release of the OS, 10.13.0 as of this post, your system is insecure. Even a fully patched 10.12.6 system is missing some critical security updates that 10.13.0 has in it. It's the sad truth of how Apple works now.
