#872 closed defect (wontfix)

Merge universal binary and PPC version

Why is there a separate PPC installer? A universal binary is by definition both Intel and PPC code, so that one should work on PPC too, right?

no, universal means it works on 10.1 10.2 10.3 10.4 etc

mac osx has version incompatabilities...

ppc and intel must be compiled seperately and be seperate binaries (usually)

Then maybe you should change the name you use for it, since every Mac user will identify "universal binary" as "runs on both Intel and PPC":
