    All--

    Sorry if this has already been discussed/answered, but I didn't see it when I searched.

    Background: I have four Macs and I'd like to upgrade all of them to Leopard when it comes out. (Obviously I'm getting a family pack.) Two of my Macs are Intel, two are PPC. Will the one family pack work across platforms? Or will there be a Leopard release for Intel and another for PPC?

    Thanks in advance!

    The install disk should be universal. I'd be surprised if it wasn't.

    I would suspect that the OS discs would be UB. But until it is confirmed no-one knows. :)

    It'll be a Universal installer. You're still going to run into the current partition problems when trying to boot from the same drive though.

    Yes one family pack will work on all of them. 10.5 will be universal or it will detach if you want using Intel or PPC when installing.
