Hi all, I have a little PowerPC 12" 867MHz with 384Mb of ram; updating from a 256Mb stick to 1Gb in a bit but for now I have 384Mb

What software will run on this version of OSX Tiger 10.4.11 more specifically what versions of iweb and iphoto?

Is there a list of software that will run on certain versions of OSX?

regards Lee

No, there is no master list of software compatible for each incarnation of OS X.

Just check the specs on the software you are interested in to be sure it is compatible with not only your OS, but your hardware as well.

you should be able to run iLife 08 and iwork 08 on that machine.

It will run the latest iTunes as well, the only thing it will not run is iMovie 08 which needs a G5

cheers people, not into making movies so its no loss with imovie, be nice to have a G5 though. I was given this powerPC because the screen was broken and I have to say I'm a bit of a Mac convert. I love GarageSale for eBay and I have my beloved Photoshop CS3 on now.

I wanted iweb as a quick simple web maker for some of my less fussy clients.

Oh! and I have tried installing the latest Picasa 3 but it won't install

This goes into what I was going to caution. Picasa, like some other apps, are Intel only. Be careful to check for that when you wish to install an application.

That seems to be Google all over - no Picasa for PPC because of the work required, no Chrome for Macs same reason.

Why is Picasa for Mac for Intel-based Macs only? - Picasa Help
