  1. they should keep support for mac. i know a lot of people who play minecraft on the mac. removing mac support would just mae them lose customers.

  2. what do they mean they are removing mac support for “older machines”. my mac is a powerpc laptop, top of the line, newest os (always updated), serviced yearly, like new, runs everything else… not mc?! U have got to be kidding? Guess I’m gonna shut my server down and send all my players away. MC will lose biz, no doubt. Some mac suse the java 5 to keep the server run stabilized.

  3. I play on a windows computer, but I still thinks it stinks for everybody that plays on macs. Most my friend play on them.

  4. When they say they are removing Power-PC support, they are talking about the Power-PC architecture of the old Macintosh computers. Apple computers use an Intel CPU now instead of the old Power-PC one. Any Apple computer made since 2006 will still Technically work if you want to play Minecraft. Nothz is completely correct. You people need to read and learn something before you post something stupid about a topic you know nothing about…

    • I’m not sure… But try forcing an update. Go to options in a the login screen and force the update. If it doesn’t work then just wait or keep looking up information. I hope I helped! :]

  5. you can get the snapshot though if you havent already got it. but i also cant wait for it to come out too i play minecraft all the time and this will really spark things up.
