The next version of Lightroom will not run on PowerPC Macs. This is very very bad news for me, as the desktop I do all my photo editing on is a Mac Pro that’s five years old now and, yes, a PowerPC-based machine. It’s understandable and I’m not mad. I’m just sad, I guess. I know it’s time to update the computer, but the cheapest desktop Mac these days is two grand. And for my main work station with nearly a terabyte of pictures now, I like the expandability of a desktop machine, not a laptop. UGH. I suppose I shuold start saving up now. And sell a kidney. I also just now realized that this is the longest I’ve owned a computer in my adult life. In my PC years, I’d buy a new system every couple or three years. This Mac desktop that many label as “overpriced” has lasted twice as long for only a very slightly higher price than I paid for my desktop PCs.
