Is it possible there will be a hack to get snow leopard to run on a power pc?????
yea its called an intel chip
Most likely wont happen, mainly because most of the changes were for optimizing it for intel chips.
I imagine that the hack would sorta null the overall snapiness of Snow Leopard. I also wonder why one would want this. There are few PowerPc apps that run faster then their Intel counterparts, Adobe comes to mind - but, Snow Leopard and Adobe playing nice seems in question.
What's the opposite of Rosetta?
Having never used Remote Desktop, I suppose I don't have much to say. But Apple has advanced it's screen sharing/desktop control software and if it doesn't run on Intel machines now, it seems that the capabilities of the software would seem rather limited.
Okay, well, when you go ahead and write seven gigabytes of PowerPC code, you let us know.
Until then, this is more than impossible.
Just buy a computer made in the last three years or ignore Snow Leopard; simple as that.
The only PPC that could use anything in SL is the G5, but again, the gains would be lost in the translation.
Stick with Leopard.
Hmm I don't concur with Adobe apps being faster, I run Adobe CS for work and had a top of the line Dual 2.5GHz G5 that got replaced with a low end Mac Pro, the Mac Pro easily outperforms everything in the CS suite 4 or 5 times faster than the G5 did...
Untrue. However, it won't run, so it doesn't matter that much.
How's it untrue?
While yes, it could run in 32-bit mode on a PPC (if ported) the primary features are 64-bit and Grand Central, which could only apply to a G5.
Grand Central is written to optimise the way code is allocated across multiple Intel processors. How could this possibly benefit G5s?
Theoretically, it's not actually possible.
I'm going to go ahead and call this thread. There just really isn't more to say here.
