    Well, upon hearing the news that the intel version of Creative Suite is going to be at least 2007, I really think someone should create a new software which does the same things, but Universal Binary, and Open Source (eek, should I have said that.)

    Hey, you never know, maybe the elite mac minds among the MacRumors forum could conjure up something.

    I would like to propose a boycott of Adobe, however unfortunately for most of us, myself included, there is no alternative to this software.

    Considering Apple announced its Intel switch back in mid-2005, I personally think a post-2007 January is a pathetic date. It's just so... Microsoft. :p

    You could always go Corel, Quark.

    Do they even have UBs yet?

    Somehow I doubt that even the geniuses around here could get a full creative suite up and running before Adobe becomes UB.

    Yeah, I have just started coding a UB app that will compete with Adobe's Photoshop, should be ready in a couple of weeks. Its free too.

    All lies.

    It's a wonderful, idealistic dream. But it could never happen. :rolleyes:
    We all wish it could. :) Especially those of us that can't afford Photoshop.
