    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?

    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7, iMac 2008 10.10.5, Macbook2007 10.7.5, Mac Mini 10.7.5, iPhone 3GS Note 8!
    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.
