Big sigh of relief! My 17,1 late 2015 iMac hack made the cut.
At least its not as bad as my 2006 'white' Macbook2,1. That unit officially only received 3 generations of OS updates from 10.4 Tiger to 10.7 Lion. It was capable of more but they weren't having it.

Apple dropped iMac14,2 support with the Big Sur announcement. Once again it makes no sense to drop support for the mid 2014 5K iMac15,1 and keep support for the ancient MP 6,1 and woefully underpowered 2014 Mac mini with a dual core laptop CPU. Why Apple ? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Inquiring minds want to know.

Incidentally those were the last machines to have Broadcom wi-Fi/BT card?
