From what I have seen, some do and some don't but they always tell you if they do.Some say things like for MacOS 9 and Mac OS X. Some say Universal (which may or may not include MacOS 9??, but certainly would generally include PPC as well as Intel Macs).Very good question. Maybe someone who has used a Mac longer than I have will be able to answer more fully.
