It just occurred to me

That I can keep my G3 iMac in case the programs don't work right on the Intel machine and I have to wait for a patch.

I think I'm going with the new one.

Are you using OS X programs? There shouldn't be any problem with them. The processor isn't going to change how the operating system runs its software

Wish it were so easy. Basically everything written for OSX has to be recoded to work with the new chips. Rosetta is an "emulation" program that translates PowerPC code into Intel code. That's why it takes longer - it has to translate the info and then run on the new chip. However, if it takes less than 10 minutes, I'll still come out ahead.

I just wish Adobe would talk about when the update will come out. Not a good situation to just have spent $900+ (and that's the "with Photoshop license" discount) on software I might not be able to use. However, they've been talking about this since July, so hopefully Adobe will get on the stick.

thats just plain out stupid. I know that apple is a lot smarter than that... why in the world would you make an emulator that doesn't work with your product... just answered my own question... money and sales. Ok, now back to getting no work really done.

The bigger question to me is why Adobe didn't make CS2 using the Universal binary code - because they knew about this a long time ago, before CS2 even came out.
