    I have just upgraded to Lion so that I can use iCloud with my iPhone but I didn't bargain on it making some of my old software redundant. I have no problem with buying Microsoft office new but my Adobe Creative suite 2.5 has also been disabled. As I bought this at the same time as my iMac (but before they brought out the first intel version) and it was hugely expensive and I only use it as a hobby, I really don't want to pay another 800 euros to update it. Is there anyway of partitioning my drive and running Snow Leopard on it do that I can use it again?

    Yep,
    This was one large complaint against apple - dropping rosetta. Either upgrade your applications or downgrade your OS

    That would be UPGRADE your OS ... afterall, Lion is a significant downgrade.

    That's your opinion which is not shared by everyone - Lion brings a lot of features to the table.

    Why is it all or nothing? upgrade/downgrade/...

    Just install Snow Leopard on an external HDD for those older apps?!? Especially if it's just a hobby/occasional use...
