Any reason a Mac can't be reverted from 10.7 or 10.8 to 10.6?
I need to find my mother a newer Mac Mini than the one she's using, but there's a catch: It needs to be able to run Snow Leopard, because my mom's addicted to Eric's Solitaire, and Eric's Solitaire won't run on anything newer than SL.

So, if I happen to find a used Mac Mini that somebody installed 10.7 or 10.8 on, it's not going to be a problem for me to wipe the HD clean and put 10.6 on there, is it?

That is to say, there aren't any firmware updates out there, or other things, that would have somehow broken 10.6 compatibility?

Thanks.

How is Eric's Solitaire any different from the many other Solitaire games out there? Just download one off of the app store and create a shortcut with the icon and name of her old squeeze.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

Totally out of the question. Believe me, I've tried to get her interested in playing other solitaire games. She HATES change, especially if that change comes in the form of something changing on her computer.

If it was a machine that was originally supported by SL then yes you can install SL on it. Just pop the disc in and go.

There should be a way to get 10.7+ to support PPC apps, I was working on it at one point and had it almost working but gave up cause I didn't care enough
