OSX Lion and Rosetta

Chris Breen from Macworld has an article about Apple dropping support for Rosetta in OSX Lion which debuts in July.

Currently, in order to run applications that are PowerPC based (not Intel) on the current OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard, you need Rosetta to act as an interpreter. With the disappearance of Rosetta in the upcoming OS, the apps that are PowerPC-based will in effect be incompatible.

You can check which app is a PowerPC version by going to the System Profiler.
