Premiere elements is suposed to be for home users, so why did it lose support for mac 32 bits so fast!?!??, I really wanted to use the new 11 version, since what I hate most on elements 10 is the interface, but the mac support is awful, if I use windows I have more features and support even for windows xp, that is more than 11 years old, but not for snow leopard 32 bits!?????

What's the concern with no 32-bit support? Do you have one of the first Intel Mac's with only a 32-bit processor?

Yes, and not that old, and while Adobe seems to support the same hardware architecture in Windows, with a much older Operating System, it seems not to do the same with Macs, since Premiere Elements is a consumer program, it should be more broad supported. Even more when most of the new things of Premiere Elements 11 is a lot better interface...

Indeed, it's frustrating that there were ever 32bit Macs released. There were very few models that had this limitation. The difference between 32-bit processors in old macs and XP is that there are exponentially more users who are still on XP than the handful of Mac users with 32bit processors - and that number is only going to go down since Apple has made a 32bit machine in years. Sorry.
