Are old versions of Adobe Creative Suite - still usable?

almost 2 years ago from

I'm cleaning up my studio and I found my old versions of Adobe Creative Suite. I have long since moved to the CC but I still have the physical media for "CS3 Design Premium" for Mac and a "CS4 Web Premium" for PC. Does anyone have any idea if either of these will still run on a modern OS?

    I'm still using CS3, but I'm also still on OSX 10.9. Everything works for what I need it to do and I see no reason to upgrade at this point.

    I have since googled around for an answer to my question and it seems for Mac it is a hard no (64bit vs 32bit apps and all), for PC its a "maybe" at best - mileage will vary on Win 10. If anyone has any actual positive experience getting older versions running on modern OS, I'd be curious to hear from you.
