My father is an attorney and does most of his work on AppleWorks 6.2.9 on his iMac 2.16GHz Core2Duo (white iMac). He has thousands of files, some created with AppleWorks 5 on his older iMac G3 under Classic Mac OS 9.2.2. Since he has these thousands (and I mean maybe over 10,000) client files, etc, in AppleWorks 5 and AppleWorks 6 format, it would really be a burden to upgrade to Lion and not be able to function his law practice anymore or open/edit these AppleWorks files. He keeps all of his hours and logs in AppleWorks. Lion DOES NOT support AppleWorks AT ALL since it is a PowerPC Application, and Apple never developed an intel port of AppleWorks. The last version of AppleWorks made was 6.2.9 and it was OS X compatible. Apple completely dropped the ball on this by dropping Rosetta support in Lion. I would bet that there are many others out there in the same situation that rely on AppleWorks (and other PowerPC applications) for their business needs and their work. Be careful and realize that there is no PowerPC support in Lion, so applications like AppleWorks, Quicken, etc that were not ported to intel will not be able to run whatsoever in Lion. Be aware, be prepared, and be smart.
