    Unless Apple comes out with iPhotoshop, Adobe will continue to make it for macs. They only stopped supporting macs as far as video editing (not including after effects) because Apple is pushing its Final Cut and is increasing the competition in an already small market making profits near impossible.

    the Yahoo article mentioned that the packages being cut includes the Photoshop. but another one from Neowin (News.com article) makes no mention of it. Hmm..

    no no, this doesnt mean the end of photoshop. they wrote this article pretty crappy. they are stopping premeire because of final cut pro and final cut express. i would do the same, there is no need for it in the mac market. apple needs photoshop, and i believe most of adobes photoshop market is mac, but i could be wrong. someone will know. but apple has been stepping on toes, but they are in a weird position. they step on toes because they feel the other people arent doing it right, and they make a superior product, but that pisses of the other companies and then they dont feel like supporting the little company that steps on everyone's toes.

    hm...another article mentioned that Adobe will keep on supplying PS because of its large use as core program in the creative environ in mac users. and as proof, the demo of the fast PS processing in G5 demo. well, at least they keep making that one for macs. :)

    You must be drunk. :rolleyes:

    Apple would be doomed completely and utterly without Adobe. Get a clue, compadre.

    Without Adobe, people would have no need for a Mac. Imagine what would happen if Microsoft stopped selling their products for Mac. The world runs on Office. The world runs on Adobe PhotoShop. Apple needs them to survive. Period.
