Coming back to the timeline, if anyone were to buy a new apple computer today shipped with Big Sur, what would you consider as older OS? Big Sur? Since Monterey was already announced?

Some of the Intel-based Macs in the current lineup originally shipped with older OSes. E.g., current Intel-based Minis date from 2018, and originally shipped with Mojave.

All of the M1-based Macs started with some version of Big Sur, and cannot go back to earlier OSes.

I'm not sure about the current intel mini (brand new) if they are firmware locked, but those under refurb certainly can go back to original shipped OS. I know cos' I have a 2015 MBP refurb and can install El Cap.

To the knowing: "OK~ I can zap this back to Mojave"

To the unknowing: "Oh WOW! I can go back to older OS, this is a miracle from apple!"

Depends which side you are on, the perspective is different, but the fact remains unchanged.
