There comes a time when everyone has to let go. We turn the page and look forward to a new day. Unless we're PowerPC users and that new day isn't any better than the old day and has more RAM requirements. But this isn't a rant. It's merely to take note of some of the more notable applications that have halted PPC support and point out that not all is lost. There are still old PPC versions available for download, and in some cases (Skype) more usable than the new versions. So here it is in list form, my not comprehensive list of applications that have halted PPC support and where you can still download the old PPC versions:
Adobe Air 1.5.3 (a runtime environment for TweetDeck) available here.
Adobe Flash 10.1.102.64 available here.
Firefox 3.6.22 is here (TenFourFox is a PowerPC port for later versions of Firefox).
Google Earth 4.3 can be grabbed here. 5.2 is actually the last PPC version, but it tries to install an autoupdate bug/background-app that is way not cool. 4.3 is free of it.
Handbrake 0.91 (Tiger) and 0.94 (Leopard) are here. An unofficial PPC build for 0.95 is here, but it's Leopard only.
NeoOffice 3.1.2 (OpenOffice.org fork) can be had here.
Opera 10.63 is available here.
Quicksilver B54 (launcher and much more) is here.
Skype 2.8 is here.
Thunderbird 3.1.14 is here (TenFourBird is a PowerPC port for later versions of Thunderbird).
Transmission 2.22 (Leopard) and 1.54 (Tiger) are here (a newer build for version 2.31 that runs on Tiger with the Qt interface is available here).
Next up, in happier news, a not comprehensive list of applications still supporting PowerPC.
