Rosetta, the part of the current version of the Mac OS that lets you run old PowerPC programs is rumored to be going away in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, and that has plenty of users upset. Matt Neuburg of TidBITS has been looking in to the situation and has an extended discussion with host Chuck Joiner about the history of Apple system software transitions, and how Apple has managed them. Find out how to determine what programs you have that might not work, why you may want to move away from Rosetta-dependent applications regardless of Lion, and several options and strategies for dealing with legacy hardware and software you just can’t replace.
