Before you shift to Catalina in a few months, double-check your 32-bit application status.

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208436

You'll actually find that quite a lot of apps are still 32-bit and these may quit working after you update. I ran a check and many of the uninstaller apps supplied by software developers are still 32-bit. Older versions of Office apps. The player utilities supplied by AJA. Just a few examples.

I've been using a nice little free app to check on my 32-bit apps:

Will try Go64 app.

BTW, Stclairsoft.com makes a great little utility--Default Folder X—that is very helpful for editors who have to save items to folders located all over the place. I've got it on all my computers.

Big loses for me will be MS Office program (2011 version), which I only use occasionally, but have a lot of old documents. I guess I will have to see how much I can use the simple mac apps of numbers, pages and keynote, sign up for the new MS Office or wait until I really need Catalina.

[Claude Lyneis] "Big loses for me will be MS Office program (2011 version)"

You could buy the Office Home & Business 2019 version. It's a non-subscription version and is 64-bit.

Of course, Pages/Numbers/Keynote do a decent job of opening and writing some Word/Excel/PowerPoint docs, depending on format and complexity.
