Mac OS X Carbon will not be 64bit in Leopard. "At last year's keynote, Apple had claimed that both Carbon and Cocoa would be 64-bit, adding to the 64-bit fundamentals that Tiger had laid. However, according to the latest on Apple's website, Leopard's 64-bit frameworks will include the POSIX and math libraries found in Tiger, Cocoa, Quartz, OpenGL, and X11 GUI framework. In addition, Apple confirms that Carbon will not be 64-bit on the Carbon Developer mailing list." In addition, the readme file included with Leopard's developer preview says G3 support will be dropped from Leopard.

Crying about no G3 support?

Get over it... I mean, really. When was the last time Apple sold a G3-based product? If you purchased your G3 with AppleCare then even that has long-since expired.

Besides, there are a few quality G3-to-G4 upgrades out there that work fine in B&W G3s and such.
