RoaringApps's Database Will Determine Compatibility Of Your Application With OS X Lion
If you plan to upgrade to OS X Lion this month, then there is a good resource to visit. Roaringapps.com is a public sourced database that is designed to help you determine whether your application is OS X Lion compatible. The site uses information entered by users about the compatibility of existing apps that run on Snow Leopard or about the need for Rosetta to work properly.
If an application requires Rosetta support, then it will not run on OS X Lion. You need to get information from the person that created the app about his or her plans to upgrade the application. This is important because apart from not working on OS X Lion the vendor of your application may not longer want to upgrade it.
In any case, it is better to start planning upgrade of your OS X Lion by updating existing application prior to installing OS X Lion to make sure that they are fully OS X Lion compatible. The release data of the new operation system is round the corner, so it would be reasonable to ensure that your favorite application will not fail to launch, malfunction or crash on the new OS X Lion.
