Mac OS X Lion Application Compatibility List!

A developer preview of Mac OS X Lion (v10.7) has been recently released by Apple which brings lots of new features, interface changes and UI enhancements. If you are enrolled in an Apple developer program, you can download your copy right now. We even showed you how to install it on a separate partition, while keeping your current Snow Leopard installation. However, the new build does not run all the current applications and to address this compatibility issue, RoaringApps has put up a list called the “App Compatibility Wiki For Mac OS X Lion”.
