What's the point of not upgrading your Intel systems? You do realize G5s would benefit little, if at all, from the advancements Snow Leopard promises, right?
You are right, I mean SL. Hard to make a point when I can't even type well. So first of all, yes Tiger was released when the Intels came out, but of course there was a PPC or Intel version so I wasn't counting that. Tiger was, to me, obviously written for PPC first.
Second, I understand that many of the "under the hood" features will only benefit some of the Intel machines, but that's not what I was talking about to begin with. I know that my G5 won't really handle Grand Central, etc. but it WOULD handle 64 bit code, and certainly I should be able to take advantage of Quicktime X included, better Exchange support, ZFS formatting, etc., correct? If the only way I can get these improvements to my user experience is to upgrade, why are these features . . . which don't seem very platform dependent . . . only going to be available to those with a newer motherboard?
