Haha, I love the graphic, a MSI Hackintosh apparently running 10.4, stupid hackintosh should upgrade.

Good Evening to my fellow posters. With regard to the above subject it would seem that Apple has outsmarted its users, like these unfortunate users (that "I still have two PowerPC machines that use OS X 10.4.11... As it stands now, it is impractical for me to update either machine due to lack of funds." Another user suggested Mozilla create two browsers, "one with all the fancy new stuff, then one for us poor people that can't drop $3,000 at the drop of the hat."). The country that I come from you have to be rich/well off to afford any apple device as the US dollar is a little more than six times the local dollar currency, that is why most computers are PC's over here.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Love it! Love MaximumPC "here" link pointing to "How to Build a Crazy Fast $647 PC". Bravo! I agree with MaximumPC. Stop whining, get real and get a kick-ass machine for 2/3 less money. Or, if one insist on spending 2/3 more on a PC with mediocre components with a fruit logo on it, knock yourself out.

Hey, do the math.

Agreed.  Or use Ubuntu for free stuff.

I don't get it, you are upset because you want the latest BROWSER and your Mac won't run all the features? Poor you that you have two machines you spent so much on and the most important thing you need is a browser. First, do you really need two machines then? Or can you upgrade one to at most a Mac mini, I mean you're only worried about the browser... And even a low end iMac would probably do as well as an old G4. Someone introduce this person to the Dark Knight 2.0

Look, we all knew that this would start happening eventually, and whoever bought a mac with a G4 is SOL, and that sucks, but you knew this could happen by buying the "superior" Mac/Power PC platform, because Apple is a hardware company, and any way they can squese another million out of it's coustomers, it will.  Smacked in the face, some would say.

When they introduced Snow Leopard they wrote off Power PC. They should have upgraded then. And again, is the main reason you have that mac is to run the latest FREE browser? I think not.

Mozilla does, indeed, make two browsers.  AFAIK, there are no plans to kill 10.4 support on Seamonkey.

You could always migrate your PowerPC systems to Ubuntu.  That way, you're using an OS that's still supported: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/releases/9.10/release/

Or, make the switch to PC.  There are plenty of great non-Mac systems that don't cost $3000.

Technically, the $30 Snow Leopard is only for upgrades from Leopard.  Otherwise, you're supposed to buy the $160 Mac Box Set.

The bigger problem is that Snow Leopard doesn't support the PowerPC architecture.

Similarly, if Mac users want to be able to accomplish much of anything, they may want to upgrade to Windows.
