Google cuts support for older editions. Before, they have cut all support for Windows XP or Vista and email client Gmail, Google has a less good news for you. They also removed all support for other operating systems than Windows, OSX and Linux in 2016. It is impossible to enter Gmail to check your new emails etc with Odyssey for MorphOS and AmigaOS 4. This browser is a webkit browser that got many similarities with Google Chrome. It is webkit and it did have Gmail and even YouTube support before. Now, nothing!?

Google tries to Encourage You to Upgrade
G Suite department advertises that users who use Chrome version 53 or older is no longer being supported by Gmail. More specifically, it means that support for Windows XP and Windows Vista users soon disappear, but also for other users who have not updated to a newer version of Chrome. Users can still access Gmail in both XP and Vista, but they expose themselves to a security using a Gmail solution is not updated or maintained.

Still using Windows XP or Vista and Gmail? Still using MacOSX Leopard? Still using AmigaOS 4 or MorphOS? Google is really pulling the free world wide web into a new direction. We think that supporting other browsers than Google Chrome shouldn’t be a question even. E-mail is something essential for everyone and when they pull a free service and start requiring from users to use only their products, it now becomes more and more Googles property.

Gmail still works thru E-mail clients on AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS
If you use a none supported operating system by Google, then you have options to install an e-mail client. But also make sure to change the security of your Gmail to low. Distrita have tested with Mail for OSX PowerPC, SimpleMail and YAM for AmigaOS compatible OS. These e-mail clients works are just some examples that works with Gmail servers and lets you read and send email thru Googles service. We hope that Google doesnt drops this service also, because people should have choices and be able to decide what sort of operating systems they want to use. Google is only helping Microsoft and Apple when doing such cuts.
