    Hello,

    I have in a corner an old mac I would like to use which has the 10.5 OS ("Leopard").

    I would like to upgrade to 10.6, snow leopard, because I could install more stuff and software, but:
    1) I can't buy it on apple store (because you need 10.6 version to use apple store)
    2) I don't find him (or with fucking high prices!)

    Do you know where I can download the snow leopard OS, legally (or without viruses/backdoors/...)?

    And, do you know if I can get it for free? It's a very old version (it is not the yosemite or the capitan, or I don't what other strange name) after all.

    Thanks.

    I don't use OSX, but logic would dictate that it would download the latest supported version for whatever hardware you are using?

    Maybe iTunes/Updater doesn't download it because the device running it doesn't support it? I wouldn't torrent an OS, who knows what's in there, plus I remember using a virtual box and running it and the errors were insane.

    I could of course be completely wrong and someone will just link you to an Apple article explaining the process or something.

    Pirate Bay is the answer.
