It will work.

It worked fine on my earlier model iMac.

I'm just hoping it will support my G5

If you need to ask, you shouldn't know.

well I know one way of getting it but isn't very safe and I just want it to have a look and stuff.

The best way of getting a copy is to become an ADC Premier member, in which case you'll be eligible to receive it from Apple. ;)

And, I believe it has already been announced that PPC support will be dropped
(confirmation?).

Not according to contacts i have inside CoreOS, the kernel division at One Infinite. The Intel-only developer preview was a rush job, and sleuths have already poked around inside it and found a lot of hooks pointing to PPC routines that go nowhere.

Expect a universal binary to be seeded to developers at the very end of this year or very early next.

The current minimum requirements for 10.6 will be a dual-core G5 running at 1.8 GHz, with 512 MB of RAM (which, funnily enough, happens to match the minimum spec for Apple's recent purchase, the PA Semi PWRfficient PA6T). If you have an iMac G5, you are most likely out of luck; all dual core G5 towers should handle 10.6 reasonably well.

lots of G4s and a G5 here.
was going to update to intel with Leopard, but it was such a pile of doggy that I waited.
so now perhaps Snow Leopard will be the kicker.

Its not worth it... too much like Leopard (imo)

..except for the speed differences.
