    Hi there,
    I've got a little problem, and hope you guys have some suggestions. You see, I want to get myself one of those yummy new IntelMacs with Tiger on it :D
    But i need to work with a program which is not a universal app and not even running under 10.4!
    So: do you know if there's anything avaiable to emulate a PowerPC 10.3 Mac on an IntelMac with 10.4 (I know how dull this sounds... but I really need this app, because I build a huge database for my research with it). Ok, there is a Windows version existing, but this is NOT an option *gulp* ....help?

    the yakyak

    ummm, a ppc osx app is a ppc osx app. it will run under rosetta on an intel mac just like anything else, regardless of whether it's optimized for tiger or not...

    I'm sure there's a PearPC build for Intel Mac's, but it's going to be EXTREMELY slow. I'd say you get a crappy old Mac and use it for your specific program use and do everything else on your shiny new Intel Mac. :)



    EDIT:
    Not true, there are some apps that do not run under Tiger that work fine on older OS X versions (e.g. Mac-On-Mac).

    I think Mac-On-Linux may be your only option.
