    Apples New OS Lion Missing Rosetta! 

    The new operating system from apple named Lion is great, it has over 200 new features including multi touch, wireless file sharing and an Iphone/Ipad style app interface and it only costs £21!

    But apple have not mentioned that the new OS Lion does not include Rosetta.

    Rosetta was a translation engine included in previous operating systems that enabled the new Intel Mac computers to run older applications that were written to run on Motorola & IBM PowerPC powered Macs.

    The result is, if you have any old applications like office for mac or Adobe PhotoShop Elements that were not written to work on intel processors, then they won’t work on Lion.


    If you have lots of old software then this could be a very expensive upgrade!
