I didn’t receive a good news right in the beginning of 2015 to PowerPC community. Recently I found out that the great application/cloud storage Dropbox is dropping the support for PowerPC machines. This will leave us behind for good, not being able to sync devices with PowerPC computers will drop us down.
I really hope Dropbox will reconsider the decision and I believe many users of dropbox are PowerPC users due other computers/devices has their own cloud applications.
I want to point out the people from VivaPowerPC wrote a letter to Dropbox team and let’s hope they will supporting us.
We can always use the social media to let @dropbox know we are using the app.
I would say that djaying is one of the most time consuming thing to do with your computer if you are into music and throw party to friends.
Sad news to get the newest Macbook Air or Macbook Pro just to djaying is very expensive, so why not look for an old cheap option like PowerBook or iBook, most of people won’t know the different unless you are using a very cool colour iBook G3 or a PowerBook Pismo/Wallstreet that the Apple logo is upside down.
Either way you can install a old version of Djay (3.1.2) totally compatible with Mac OS X 10.5. Of course there are some limitations when you compare the most recent 4.2.3, but the application run just fine and you will rock the party… …as long as your music rocks, of course.
Have fun guys.

Once I started using Mac I never actually had any issues finding and adapting to new applications. I turned my back to windows and never retreat it. But some of you might want to use some windows program and this application will help you.
Darwine: PowerPC – Mac OS X 10.3.9 Panther or later.
Darwine project intends to port and develop WINE as well as other supporting tools that will allow Darwin and Mac OS X/ppc users to run Windows Applications, and to provide a Win32 API compatibility at application source code level.
Today is our 3 year anniversary. I want to thank all of you for supporting us all these years. We Mac PowerPC users must stick together for better or worse. We might not have the most powerful machines but we can be the most connected computer community. And I assure you we do have the most beautiful designed computers (G3, G4 and G4).
Show PowerPC some love and write some words on our wall.
