I suspect this is case of "yes and no".
If the hypothetical bug that's found requires code development to fix, it seems quite likely Apple may not bother.
I guess it depends what we mean by "support". If it means fixing any possible problem, no matter what the circumstances or difficulty, then that may not be realistic. Apple probably aren't gonna be doing this, even if they are still offering some degree of "support" (e.g telephone help)
Whereas if providing "support" means doing what realistically can be done, and helping users where they can be helped, but, if (say due to a key dependency) a fix is not possible, then that's also fair enough. And would be nice if Apogee were at least offering this. Have they actually said "not supporting" means they won't touch this with a bargepole, so if I phone up wanting some straightforward setup help with a 10.11 setup they'll simply tell me to b*gger off ?
