    3 GSAS-II has been tested by us (Brian) on Intel (i386) Macs typically running 10.12 to 10.14. Newer versions of OS X should not be a problem. Versions of OS X as old as 10.6 should work, but you will need to find and install older Python distributions  [wiki:InstallMacHardWay see the "hard way" instructions.]
     3GSAS-II has been tested by us (Brian) on Intel (i386) Macs typically running 10.12 to 10.15 (Catalina). GSAS-II does not
     4yet run on Apple Silicon (M1) CPUs and it also has problems with
     5OS X 11 (Big Sur).

     7While this is not recommended, GSAS-II can be run on older versions of OS X (even back to 10.6) but you will need to find and install older Python distributions, [wiki:InstallMacHardWay see the "hard way" instructions]. We can't help with this.

     46There are two problems with running GSAS-II on Macs under Big Sur that have not yet been properly addressed. One major, one minor. The major one is that Python needs an update to find the OpenGL library. A patch for that is [https://stackoverflow.com/a/64021312/2487653 here] but a better fix is not available yet. The minor one is that the !AppleScript fails with a "Not authorized to send Apple events to Terminal" error. Clicking Edit and running the script from inside the Script Editor (click on the arrow in the upper right) is clumsy, but does work.
