Mac OS X The original rumours concerning Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard stated that it would be available only for 64bit Intel processors, leaving PowerPC G4, G5, and early Intel Macs out in the blue. While Steve Jobs' keynote and the preview pages at Apple.com did not speak of any hardware cut-offs, Gizmodo got their hands on a hardware requirements document for the Developer Preview release of Snow Leopard, and it contains bad news for PowerPC users.

Then again, the original requirements for Leopard was an 800MHz G4 or higher, to which Apple bumped that to an 867MHz G4 for the final, shipping version of Leopard. So it's possible that PPC machines will be left out from future OS releases.
