You mean Git is shit. Git is not the only distributed version control system and it's not the best. It's main contribution to software engineering is to turn the version control domain into a monoculture, stifling innovation, through the power of Linus's personality cult.

What kind of dumbass company is going to spend money porting a new version of an OS to an old platform, with no payday for doing so?


Well, OK there must be a payday. Perhaps they see the fact that you can put the latest iOS onto a 4s as a selling point. i.e. if you splashed the cash for one in 2011 you would feel better knowing that, theoretically, you could still have the latest OS four years later even if unreality you replace it after two years.

Come to Europe and look at the cars. You will see very few American cars and the ones that you do see will generally be niche models. Now it could be that most US cars are unable to pass European safety standards or it could be that the perception in Europe is that American cars are crap badly made gas guzzling turds that won't go round corners.
