So oh hey, Mac OS update this week! Snow Leopard to to all reports sounds really, really shiny. But the potential bugaboo for the Murk is that with this release, OS X is dropping support for Power PCs, and one of our Macs, the older laptop we’re using as a Time Machine server, is a G4 and won’t run the new OS.

I haven’t been able to find any word yet on whether Time Machine in Snow Leopard will continue to happily talk to a Time Machine server running Leopard. Anybody know one way or another? I’d hate for this to be a dealbreaker for getting the upgrade, since we could get a nice family pack upgrade for the house Macs for fifty bucks.
