    I would give it at the very least 2 releases of the OS.

    I heard rumors that Leopard will be the last PPC supported version of OS X.

    Why would they cut it off after 1 or 2 releases of OS X? Their install base won't be over 50% in 3 years, it would just be stupid for them in a profit view. Unless the older system's can't handle these next releases. But Apple hasn't done that yet systems that are 5 years old can run tiger. I doubt they will have quad-prosesser, or Xserve systems not being able to run an OS in 3 years these systems.

    they will probably continue with universal binary versions for a while. Lots of people still have PPC products, and most will still have them for a while. I would say the minimum of 3 years, but I'm sure they'll continue with updates.
