Apple removes mention of G3s from Leopard pages

When the Leopard Sneak Peek pages went live on apple.com Monday, the 64-bit section touted Leopard’s universal nature (no separate Intel- and PowerPC- based versions) with the following sentence: “From G3 to Xeon, from MacBook to Xserve, there is just one Leopard.”

Obviously the inclusion of the word G3 and Leopard in the same sentence would seem to indicate the latter would run on the former. But maybe a marketing writer didn’t run that sentence by the proper authorities, as the sentence was removed from the page the next day. If there was any question whether or not Leopard would support G3s, I think the removal of that sentence answered it ahead of next Spring.

Ironically, Google’s cache of the page only includes two sentences: the aforementioned one and “All features referenced in the Mac OS X Leopard Sneak Peek are subject to change.”
