Apple's HT3258 Instructions state the following (paraphrased):

 

"When you install the operating system or when you migrate from another Mac, known-incompatible software is moved to a folder named "Incompatible Software".

 

During installation, Mac OS X moves known-incompatible software to a folder named "Incompatible Software" at the root level of the hard drive. If you see this folder on your Mac, see what applications are in it, then check with the application's developer for available updates."

 

Unfortunately, having installed several Lion and Mountain Lion Operating Systems on a number of Macs, and using Migration Assistant to move all files and applications from Snow Leopard volumes, the process DOES NOT isolate non-compatible PPC applications in a folder at the HD root level.

 

Any clues?
