What's the official word on CS6 support of MacPro1,1?

I've got the original MacPro, 2 x 2 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon with 8 GB RAM. It's got a 64-bit processor (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3696?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US), but only a 32-bit EFI. It's officially unsupported with Mountain Lion, but am wondering how well it'll run the main CS6 apps (photoshop, fireworks, illustrator, flash, indesign) if at all? inb4 "buy a new computer"

 

Perhaps someone with this machine can confirm or deny CS6 support?

    Have you tried downloading the Trial versions of the Adobe apps?

     

    Then you'll have 30 days to thoroughly test performance on your system before the Trials expire.

    You have quite specific requirements.

     

    You'll get definitive answers on your own system within a couple of days if you just download one app (say the one you'll use the most) and try it out.

     

    Best of luck.
