    It's possible if you have the source*, but since it's shareware the developer wont be giving away the source.

    *Obviously there are other complications, like using newer APIs not found in 10.5 etc.

    Spoke to microsoft on office 2004

    Just spoke to microsoft on updating office '04 to be universal; they sort of avoided the questions saying it's in apple's hands to support powerpc apps or not; also, now I know why apple is #1 in customer satisfaction because they don't outsource calls to india where there's people who have terrible english accents

    Duff-Man says...surely you did not seriously think that MS would recompile a suite that they released almost 8 years ago for a platform that Apple has abandoned, especially when they've released 2 subsequent updates for the suite. Now, I'm as good as most at giving MS a hard time about their products but in this case I can't find any fault in their strategy....oh yeah!
