    I believe you're referring to the term "PowerPC-exclusive". As far as I know, it's grammatically sound, meaning "to exclude the PPC."

    The article claims that Snow Leopard is the last PowerPC-supporting version of OS X when it was actually Leopard.

    Does that mean, that Rosetta in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard was not able to run and thus support PPC applications? I know, that Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard was Intel only and not UB anymore, but I am still able to run PPC applications with it.

    I guess "support" means something else in this regard. Bummer.

    Rosetta works in SL.

    The article is correct. Snow Leopard can run PPC-only ("PowerPC-exclusive") software.

    Thus the article is correct, is it not? Or am I understanding the phrasing of "PPC support" differently? For me it means, PPC applications (not UB) are still supported and able to run, similar to Classic Mode on older PPC Macs.
