Adobe likely won't release an official statement until 10.6 is officially out but from everything I've read from people who beta tested SL it will work fine. I wouldn't expect any problems. I just ordered my 10.6 and I expect it will be great with CS4.

I've upgraded every version of Mac OS since OS 6.x Since 10.x, I've had very little trouble with upgrades. Occasionally there are incompatibilities, but these are often known in advance. The biggest switch came with the change to Intel-based architecture, not with software.

Although you will see a bit of screaming and shouting, Mac OS upgrades are generally boring affairs.
-- Most mainstream software will keep working, or will announce a upgrade path.
-- Many utilities (SuperDuper!, DiskWarrior, etc.) will not work, but they will happily sell you upgrades. (If they don't do it for free.)
-- A few weeks after the new OS starts shipping, Apple will release an ooopsie update (free download) that will clean up a lot of loose ends.
One reason for using a Mac is to avoid Windows style trainwrecks. And it is probably wise to be a later rather then earlier adopter - if you can wait a week or three, you will find that most of the smoke settles fairly quickly. And some times, as in the case of 16 bit print drivers and Time Machine, the new release will bring lots of useful goodies. For what it is worth, I have never had to "fall back" to a previous release because the new one would not work.
