I beg your pardon, what does Cyrillic have to do with RTL language support?

@WhoaWhoa: please enlighten me
Not sure what your point is... but then perhaps I didn't make my point clear: what I find irritating is not that Apple would develop iMovie beyond the point that I can use it on a particular configuration; it's annoying to me and other users, but it's Apple's right to do so, and expecting them to keep software compatible with older and older specs would be silly. What does annoy me is that App Store is "unable" to filter out updates that aren't supported on my iMac - that's all.
As for the iMac itself - yes it's still a good looking piece of equipment, which doesn't look out of place in a living room; if that makes me prefer "shiny" to a desktop PC, then I'm guilty! :-)
"Big price tag" - wouldn't know about that, bought that iMac second hand in 2012 - best purchase I ever did on eBay! As P.Lee remarked, these Core2duo iMacs (especially 24") are very nice machines - hardware is upgradable (merci iFixit :-), easiest possible use for kids, screen is large and bright, CPU more than capable of running regular tasks: email, Web surfing, playing music and videos, photo and home video edits.
As far as I'm concerned, that's enough "reality of computers" for me: job done, happy with the price paid. What's your story?
Upgraded the family iMac (2.8 GHz Core2duo) - everything fine, until I tried to upgrade iPhoto and iMovie (as suggested by the Store application itself). Surprise surprise, iMovie won't download, as App Store reports the iMac's graphics card (ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO) isn't supported.
Then why even offer to upgrade iMovie in App Store, if it's not supported on this particular iMac? Surely the App Store could filter out any apps which are not supported?
Perish the thought Apple would actually want to rub my face into the fact that this iMac, a perfectly respectable 5yr old machine, has actually taken its first step into obsolescence... Will uninstalling iMovie altogether be the only way to stop seeing an upgrade notification for this app henceforward?!?
Little Snitch scare...
Was sweating bullets for a few minutes there... after upgrading from 10.6.4 to 10.6.5, Safari would crash upon start up. Eventually figured out the culprit was LittleSnitch, which was still at v2.1.3 and blissfully unaware of Snow Leopard. After upgrading LS to v2.3.2, Safari starts just fine.
For some reason LittleSnitch does not check for updates, thus I didn't question it's suitability for Snow Leopard...
