Apple have had a pretty consistent policy for a long time of issuing "minor" updates to the current release, and security updates only for the previous release. It's quite possible (likely?) that 10.6.8 will be the final minor update for 10.6 under this model, and this will be the final security update for Leopard. After this, PPC users are totally screwed.


IMHO the last PPC Mac shipped around 6 years ago - personally I think that is pretty damn good in my books; at some point one has to throw in the towel and say, "yeap, I've gotten good mileage out of the machine".
