Confirmed: Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard will run on G4′s
There has been some concern since the announcement that Leopard is a 64 bit operating system that those of us with 32 bit machines would be left in the dust with Tiger. Fear not though, Endgadget dispels this rumor after talking with Apple. This means that G4′s, G5′s, Core Solo’s and Core Duo’s will be allowed to run Leopard, they just won’t necessarily run at optimal performance for things built for the 64-bit platform. This is both good and bad news, good that we can all run Leopard, bad that we won’t have the same performance as Core 2 Duo Mac users will have. Perhaps this is a good excuse to upgrade your hardware come fall?
