    Power PC G5 - upgrade to latest OS?
    I have a Power Mac G5 with Power PC processor, currently running OS 10.4.11.

    What is the latest OS I can upgrade to? I think it's 10.5 isn't it, with 10.6 dropping support for Power PCs?

    I'm having trouble with Firefox and Flash Player saying I need to upgrade my OS. Is an upgrade to 10.5 going to solve these problems?

    Or should I be thinking about upgrading my whole set up now for futureproofing?

    cheers

    Specs:
    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7 OSX10.11, iMac 2008 OSX10.11, MBP Late2011OSX10.11 , iPad Air, iPhone 3GS
    10.5 Leopard. 10.6 Snow Leopard is Intel Only.

    You will find that a retail 10.5 will cost quite a lot. Check Ebay.

    Leopard might solve that issue for now but you should look in getting an Intel Mac ASAP as things are changing all the time.
