Topic: Will CS4 work with Snow Leopard? (Read 2672 times) previous topic - next topic

Will CS4 work with Snow Leopard?
I know, I can do some real digging to find out, but does anyone have EXPERIENCE with CS4 and whether it works with Snow Leopard? Does Snow Leopard have Rosetta? I'm trying to find the least expensive path to putting Creative Suite on the iMac we're buying, which comes with Snow Leopard 10.6 but what I've been reading is that CS4 only works up to Leopard 10.5.4.
Damn, I'm confusing myself.
Thanks -

Yes. I use it every day. Add yes it has rosetta but you don't need rosetta for CS4.

You can even use CS3 on Snow Leopard too.

Right on, right on. It disgusts me to the point of calling it "quark" (no respectful capitalization) but I think you nailed it.

We should start our own country.

Things would go to shit real fast once the brewery was up and running. :laugh:

Hmmm, what would be up first brewery or distillery? Damn sure the farming operation will be the first thing up and running.

I hope Joe has enough room in his backyard for a handful of angry, lazy prepressers.
