More on Lion compatibility.

Classic and PowerPC applications will NOT work in Lion, but it is possible that some of your applications that are Intel or Universal based also won’t work in Lion! Which ones? Better to know BEFORE you upgrade to Lion.

There is a web site that is a Wiki where users can report on the working of applications under Lion. The data, so far, of course is from the Developer community.

The top box lets you click and check for an application based upon its name. Try Q to see how bad Quicken is

The Status box is a report on the software and Lion.

  • Cheers for the green / check icon; it apparently works.
  • Boo’s for the red / X icon; it doesn’t work.
  • Caution for the yellow / ! icon; it worked but there were some issues.
  • Not Tested yet for the blue / ? icon.

The App Store box apparently indicates whether the application is available from the Mac App Store.
