I asume that some of you would have already read this regarding Adobe products and issues with 10.7 (Lion)

http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/905/cpsid_90508.html#main_Photoshop

The below appears about a third to half way doen the page:


"Rosetta support no longer included with Lion

CS2 or earlier versions of Adobe products required Rosetta to run on newer Intel based mac systems. These older versions will no longer be supported as Apple removed Rosetta support with the 10.7 release."

Don't see it mentioned in this thread (apologies if I'm duplicating), but found this today on Epson UK site

http://www.epson.co.uk/Printers-and-All-In-Ones/Large-Format/Epson-Stylus-Pro-3800/Drivers-Support;jsessionid=A4D69ACE74BB3A97600B71250DF931AC.acc3-new?target=article&extn=.html&articleId=4894

Scroll down to near bottom for Large Format printer stuff : it says new drivers for these will come mid-August. I think I can wait til then for Lion - it's always fun to watch the stramash as the early adopters test stuff out (my favourite was the "PSCS3 killed my car" thread on Adobe Forums)

BTW, anyone here know if PKS2 is Lion-proof?

Cheers

Mark, we photographers with our special needs are a drop in the bucket (maybe more like a single grain of sand on the beach) in terms of ultimate market size. 
...

According to Apple's latest financials, the Mac platform itself is only a small portion of Apple's revenue.  Total Mac sales are growing at about 14% per year but
iPhone and iPad revenues growing at rates of over %140 each year.   Every year the Mac is becoming a smaller and smaller portion of Apple's revenue.

It's not that photographers are a drop in the bucket in terms of market size, it's that the entire Mac line is a drop in the bucket compared to the millions of consumers who buy iPhones, iPads, iPods, etc.

Quite right, though iPod sales are taking a big hit right now since smart-phones (and I include Androids) can do everything the iPod does.  I suspect the iPod will go the way of a lot of other hardware advances over the next several years (e.g. disappear from the marketplace in the same way the Walkman and Discman did).  As has been discussed to death on several other threads, Apple's strategy is linking all of their devices through the OS.  In the long run the company is going to have to really increase earnings on the content side since the hardware side will approach the saturation point (though I'm unsure about when that will happen and Apple really doesn't break these earnings out in their quarterly reports).  You can already see growth starting to slow with iPhone sales and that's a far more competitive marketplace than tablets right now.  I suspect they will retain an advantage in the tablet space for at least another year.  Big question is what is the "next great thing" to come from Apple, other than cloud service (which will be more difficult to compete in with everyone else gearing up in a way that is OS independent; if Apple tries to lock down their cloud service via the OS, this could give rise to antitrust action which would turn out to be very nasty given the financial strength of the opponents).  Interesting company indeed.

While it does not speak to print driver compatibility, here is a table that reports Lion compatibility for a lot of color management apps:
