Photoshop: Why doesn't Photoshop CS2 doesn't run on MacOS 10.7 (Lion)?

I cannot use Photoshop CS2 AT ALL with Lion. I get a message that Power PC Applications are not supported. Any comments?

Mac OS "Lion" doesn't run Power PC Applications and Photoshop CS2 for the Mac is Power PC only (Intel-based Macs didn't exist back when CS2 was released). Photoshop CS3 and newer versions all support Intel based Macs.

Apple no longer includes Rosetta with Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion):

This means that Photoshop CS2 and earlier, as well as any 3rd party plug-ins, scanner drivers and printer drivers that were written for PPC Macintosh's will no longer run on Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion).

Thanks Apple.Installed Lion and now Photoshop CS2 and several other applications will no longer work.
If I could sue I would.
Apple should give prior warning before installation.

It's been known for quite some time that Power PC applications will not work with Lion. There was plenty of warning.
