Hi @ all


I use now round about 3 Weeks my Power Mac G5 Dual 2 Ghz PowerPC, and i really happy with this! In case with the OS X 10.5.8 also. But sometimes i reach out the Borders of the System.

Especially if I want to use the cloud. ITunes is indeed so far, but is not compatible with my Ipad. I solved with Google Calendar. But what I miss are all the advantages like, bookmarks and syncronisation with my iPad. It would be a little for Apple to bring out an update. At times, no matter how many Power Mac G5 are in circulation. So as this update should only describe the mobileme account to icloud, so that everyone can take advantage of the PowerPC in its iCloud. A OS X 10.6.1 for PPC would also not exactly the most traffic. Just because there are still so many PPC users in the Apple community, and I include myself also help! Because PPC was the most innovative system in the world with OS X, and is! I would be very happy if there was an update in the near future for PPC, which would describe the subject and thus call the PPC back to life would be!



Sincerely, Peter1965p

Power Mac G5 (Late 2005), Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Apple ceased all production of PPC Macs in 2005. To progress from Leopard 10.5.8 to Snow Leopard and beyond you will need to buy an Intel based Mac from 2010 or later.

    Your G5 (and mine as well) is 6 years ouf of date, a long time in computer terms. The latest operating systems, internet browsers and applications will not work with it, and it is technically impossible to make them do so.


    We have to stay where are or start saving!

    Linux, which is also used by Apple

    No it isn't. OS X is Unix based.


    Where to send product feedback to Apple:

    It will never happen, and I don't think that further discussion of this subject will serve any useful purpose.
