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."

Taking advantage of new systems

I personally want the next version of photoshop to take advantage of everything the latest hardware and software has to offer. I certainly don't want to see it 'not use' a feature in order to protect backwards compatibility.

Lets not forget these G5 users can continue to usethe current photoshop to their hearts content. If you NEED a new feature of the new CS then it might be time to also upgrade your hardware (esp as the G5 ebay price is still quite high atm and I expect it will drop post snow leopard)
