The Sprog II can be used on a PPC Mac running Mac OS X.  As the following screenshots show,  version 2.5.3 or Decoder Pro will work with JAVA 1.5.0.06. under Mac OS 10.4.11 Tiger Power PC version.   The current version of JMRI, which is included on the CD supplied with the Sprog II, will not work on the PPC Mac.
