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."

Actually, it's your fault, as a developer, that your PPC Mac will be outdated within a few months. Since Apple developers always think they need to stay updated, virtually no new software works on older revisions of OS X. And since Apple cuts off support for their hardware several years prematurely, older Macs can only run abandonware for older OS X versions.
