Cataclysm Launch Will Shut Out PowerPC Mac Users

A post over on the official Blizzard Forums for World of Warcraft informs users of PowerPC Mac systems that once the Cataclysm update is released, they'll no longer be able to play the game. Bummer... here's what it said:
A little forewarning to those of you that play World of Warcraft on these systems.

Shortly before the release of Cataclysm, a patch will be released in which PowerPC processor based Macs will no longer be supported.

This update indicates the removal of PowerPC support from World of Warcraft.

Attempting to run the game after the update will bring up a message stating the hardware is no longer supported, and the game will not run.
But then again, how many of you are running those systems anyway? Get with the times people.
