Graphics, User Interfaces Adobe has announced it is dropping PowerPC support from its next version of the Creative Suite for the Mac. "By the time the next version of the Suite ships, the very youngest PPC-based Macs will be roughly four years old. They're still great systems, but if you haven't upgraded your workstation in four years, you're probably not in a rush to upgrade your software, either. Bottom line: Time & resources are finite, and with big transitions underway (going 64-bit-native, switching from Carbon to Cocoa), you want Adobe building for the future, not for the past."

It has been about 4 years since Apple has released Power PC Systems anyways. Any Power PC OS X systems would be well showing its age by now. And updating your CS will not probably be the best idea as the new features will probably run that much slower. Stick with the current version if you don't want to upgrade. If you do want to upgrade then you have reason to get a New system. It has been long enough to get a new one anyways.
