    I'm sure I've messed up the name powerpc. I have a mac that runs the other animal but can't run Snow Leopard. It has the unix based system.

    I sure do need to get educated on the terminology but I think you'll be able to help me dispite my limitations.

    I have iLife '08 and intended to wait until version '10 was released. Now I'm not so certain that my computer will support this new version. Does anyone have insight into the minimum OS requirements for this release?

    If I can't upgrade, would you recommend that I grab iLife '09? I would only use the Movie and DVD portion of this SW as all my photos are in Lightroom. I have no intention of using Garage Band or iWeb.

    Thanks everyone.

    I agree. I think they'll drop support for the PowerPC chips for the next version of iLife. Apple will probably require Snow Leopard for it.

    iLife '09 required Leopard, so it makes sense that the next version will require Snow Leopard.

    Bingo, the day Snow Leopard shipped, basically signaled the end of PPC support for future app shipments from Apple.

    While Leopard will get bug fixes until the next OS, any new apps from Apple will likely be Snow Leopard only -- thus Intel only.

    Has been happening every OS update for awhile. Ship a new OS, require that OS for the new application.

    Explain iLife 08.

    It is not likely that Apple is going to drop support for Leopard in iLife '10 just because they shipped a $29 service pack.
