        Do you have an older Mac that you still use? Or maybe an older retro Mac is sitting in a closet that you’d like to dust off and get some use out of? Maybe it’s a PowerBook that is running Snow Leopard, an original iMac with Tiger, an older Macintosh LC 475 with System 7.0.1, a Quadra 800 with Mac OS 9, or a Macintosh SE with System 6.

        Whatever the older Macintosh computer is, to make it useful nowadays you’d likely want to find and download some old Mac software for it….

        The author of the article made and error. PowerBooks can’t run Snow Leopard, only Leopard.

        With that said, I’ve had a ton of luck with Macintosh Garden. I’ve found plenty of useful software for my old PowerBook from it. For Windows users, WinWorldPC is another similar site.
