Not too worry, Apple will continue to support PPC until the number intel models surpasses the combined totals of all G4s & G5s twice over.<br><br>As long as you and I continue to extend the value of our computers by updating our software and adding upgrades, we'll keep the market for the PPC alive and remain relevant in Apple's eyes.<br><br>I believe OS X has slowed down the rate of attrition of the PPC.<br><br><br>M i c h a e l (OFI)

Both the G4 and G5 are PPC.<br>Leopard, which is coming out this month, will still support PPC.<br>But the next operating system after Leopard will stop the PPC support.<br>Probably not a real big deal. G4 and G5 users will have to stay with Leopard until the end of time.<br><br><br>
The cut off will be determined processor speed only hopefully. Just because the original hardware was below the 867 Mhz threshold hopefully they won't disallow it to run on that cryeria alone and onlky look at processor speed. Unless there's some sort of legacy chip limitation, model of G4 chip, ATA controller model, etc.<br><br>Even if so I'd say something like exposfacto will come to the rescue.<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>I would think that Apple would drop G4 support entirely and still support G5s for a little while longer.<p><hr></blockquote><p>Like I mentioned above, the G4 Mini's and laptops, and the G5's, were just discontinued end of summer of 2006, a year ago. I doubt they will drop support for them any time soon. I'd say at least through 10.6 should be good.<br><br>You been gone? <br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game
