The current demo version from Douglas is PPC only and appears to have been last built in 2006 so that's the one to worry about. If you are quick, you could buy a new iMac with 10.6.7 now with an applecare warranty, which will give you three years to transition to something else. You should ask Douglas what their plans are. If you don't like the answer, it's time to switch to something else, e.g. Eagle. Alternatively, use boot camp to get round the problem.
