    10.5.8 is the last version of OS X to work on any Power PC Mac. Regrettably that also locks it out of the latest versions of Safari, Firefox and Chrome.

    I have an old (2003!) PowerBook G4 that is also stuck on Leopard... it is amazing that it was fully supported up to the end of 2011 (when 10.7 Lion was released)..... (8 years of productive, supported computing from a laptop is a good effort). I hang onto it because it is almost a collectors item - it can run OS 9 and OS X 10.2 through to 10.5!
