Okay, so I've been unsuccessfully trying to upgrade to Mountain Lion - I can't seem to find the location from where to download the install files and make the installation disk. I know Yosemite's a free download, but I would rather go with an only slightly newer version than the latest. This seems to be an OTA upgrade. My Or will I just need to download from the App Store every time I want a fresh install? Then you can duplicate it in case of loss. Discussion is locked.

Apple releases update for Lion and for Snow Leopard | ZDNet
Although Snow Leopard only ran on Intel machines, Lion drops Rosetta support, meaning any software written for the PowerPC architecture will no longer work at all. If you still use any of these apps, now would be a good time to either update these Rosetta apps to the latest hopefully Intel compatible version, or delete them entirely.
How do you tell if an app you depend upon requires Rosetta? You can go about updating these apps in any number of ways. They might have their own update mechanisms, they might have updates available on their websites. Now launch these apps again and run Activity Monitor one more time.
Just open System Profiler in the Utilities folder, click on Applications, and in the resulting list of all applications on your Mac, click on the Kind column to sort them by Kind. Scroll down to see all of your PowerPC apps in one place! To upgrade to Lion, you need to have at least 8GB of hard drive space free. Start with Singlemizer, drag your most likely suspect folders Documents, Photos, Movies, Music to its main window and start killing your duplicates.
