Setting on PGGP
First, PGGP runs fine on Windows computers.
Macintosh OS version of PGGP
will not run on the new Lion (OS 10.7) Apple released the summer of 2011. This was sort of uncertain for a while
now it is official. So, unless you contact me for special
circumstances, PGGP for Mac is no longer for sale.
PGGP is getting tired. The first copies of PGGP ran on DOS.
It moved to Apple ProDOS on Apple //e computers and then to
Macintosh. Windows PGGP appeared in the 90's.
I love Macintosh computers, but Apple has been tough on developers.
The original Mac used the 6800 Motorola processors.
they moved to the PowerPC, many things broke. Programs and
compilers had to be rewritten. System X was another tough
and more software had to be rewritten. Then came Intel and
supplied a hidden translator called Rosetta that made earlier software
work. Rosetta will not be supplied, nor will it work with the
OS 10.7. So, PGGP for Mac dies. (So do
many early versions of Mac
This makes me sad, but I am retired and probably loosing touch with the
true classroom. The learning curve for OS 10.7 is huge and
boys are taking over gradebooks. PGGP for Windows will
continue to run
and of course will run on any Macintosh running Windows.
