Sketchup 2016 not working on MAC OS X 10.6.8

I have an older MacBook that I keep in the garage and I went to Sketchup.com to download the latest version, installed it, and went to run it and received a message that I need a newer OS. My questions are: 1) why didn’t it download the correct version for the verison of OS that I am running and 2) why is there no way to select the correct version for my OS?

Sorry! Support for OS X 10.6 was dropped as of SketchUp 2013 and Trimble does not provide licenses for obsolete versions, so there is no “correct version” available to download for your system

when you download any program, it has no idea if you intend to instal on that machine, or you popped down the road for a free, high speed connection, and a coffee, etc…

but they could stop you I guess…

older versions are available for Make if it’s non-Comercial use…
