if I upgrade to snow leopard will I still be able to run my old software such as quicken an ms office?
I am using MS office 2008 and Quicken 2007.
Thanks for any help from anyone who has done this!
Both of those, along with any other PPC app, such as Eudora, run well in Snow Leopard. I've been doing that for over three years.
Just be sure you select Rosetta to install from the optional installs list; it's installed by default in Leopard, but you may need to select it manually for SL from the retail disc.
Would Also Recommend that you do a Bootable Clone Backup of your current Hard Drive Before attempting any Major Upgrade...
By far the easiest way to make a Backup, is to use something like
