Are you sure?  I thought there were patches released near the end of the 10.20
support period that would enable it for this hardware,  for exactly
the reason you
mention -- many apps ran on 10.20, not 11.x.  The page at


suggests that they're only 11.x boxes; the J6000 was the last of the
10.20 boxes.

Though I never managed to figure out what could be so hard about "porting"
from 10.20 to 11.x.  The transition from 9.x to 10.20 *was* a big jump, however.
I suppose that for some apps, the cost of testing / validation easily outweighs
the cost of keeping old hardware and OS revisions going.
