Snow Leopard is Intel-only, and your G5 is powered by a non-Intel processor. If you'd like to upgra Snow Leopard is Intel-only, and your G5 is powered by a non-Intel processor. If you'd like to upgrade your system, Leopard is a very good choice and does work on PowerPC processor Macs. I believe you can still purchase Leopard through various stores that sell Apple products and software. It would certainly be worth it!
Otherwise, you can look at refurbished or new replacement machines that are powered by an Intel Processor. I highly recommend getting a machine that features a Core 2 Duo processor, and would look at the graphics processor vs. the Snow Leopard tech requirements, so that you can maximize the features that 10.6 offers.
Good luck! …
