    So I've got a hold of some vintage Mac PowerPCs, and I am in need of OSX 10.5. I'd also appreciate any older versions of OSX, PowerPC or Intel if anyone has them handy. Thanks.

    Thank you.

    Once this is installed, can I update to any later MacOS via the Apple Store?

    Thank you.
    So, I have to buy Snow Leopard, download the update from your link and upgrade for free Through the Apple Store within two years of purchasing Snow Leopard to any OS later than Snow Leopard? Otherwise, I should just buy any OS later than Snow Leopard I want and upgrade to later as needed within two years to test apps i write? Is there no way to get a late OS for free?

    So 10.6.6 wont help me? 10.13.5 will do me, right? And then I can update to 10.13.6 which I think is the latest through the Apple store? I'm looking for an old Mac laptop at auction or ebay otherwise I'm going to have to create a hackintosh. I can do that with the OSes listed in this thread, right?

    Thank you
