Have a Mac with Intel Core 2 Duo
what software do you need to open all those funky ms formats
The mac does not require extensions to filenames.
When trying to open a Microsoft file with some weird
extension on it I always get a message about needing
a program or something to open the file -this happens
most frequently when trying to read or view mail from
my PC friends.
There must be some software that will look at the extension
and translate it for me. Right?
Thanks for your time.
P.S. I am looking at the new Imac as a replacement for
this relic I am using.

I want to use my new iPod Touch and my new Magic Mouse!!!!
So, I bought a new iPod Touch and got a Magic Mouse for Christmas. Low and behold, I can't use either of them. Why? Because I need to upgrade my computers. Clever Apple, very clever!!!!
I have an old PowerBook and a newer iMac. Both are running OS 10.4.11. Therein lies the issue.
I can upgrade both to OS 10.5 and use my iPod and Magic Mouse on both computers.
- or -
I can upgrade my iMac to OS 10.6 and use the iPod and Magic Mouse only on the iMac (can't upgrade PowerBooks past 10.5).
I really don't want to shell out the money ($170 U.S., as I live in Taiwan and it's more expensive here) to buy the OS 10.6 Box Set to upgrade my iMac. Also, if I only upgrade the iMac, my PowerBook is left out in the cold and I can't use either of my new toys on it.
Ideally, I'd like to buy OS 10.5 and upgrade both of my computers. This would also be the less expensive option, AND it would allow me to use my new toys on both computers. I don't really need all the new bells and whistles with 10.6, so 10.5 is just fine for my needs.
After this long-winded diatribe, my question is:
Is there anywhere that I can buy Mac OS 10.5?
Thanks to anyone who can offer assistance!

I haven't upgraded since OS 10.4.11. I have a 2.3 GHz PowerPC G5. I need to upgrade all my software and need to know what the best OS option is.
My mac is 3 years old and until recently has been running fine. Finding that I need to upgrade my Adobe software and have added new peripherals: desktop printer, scanner, external hard drive, card reader..., with lots of problems following. Thought if I updated OS then software I might resolve many of the problems I'm seeing.
