    I don't know whether this has been requested yet, but I think that there should be a page on the guide where apps that run in rosetta are listed, along with performance rating, and possible UB alternatives.

    I think it'd be really helpful.

    Yeah, like a Wiki or something, so anyone can edit it. I hear you, loud and clear!

    I saw a one for Games once, can't remember where it was though. Could have been here, I'll try hunt it out...

    Edit: Thought it was here UB Games

    Geekbench has the ability to run native and under rosetta.

    Geekbench.Rosetta = 110.5 Link

    Geekbench (UB) = 181.4 Link

    Sounds good to me. A new Guide page. I was thinking "Rosetta Applications" for the page name, but that's not really descriptive of exactly what you're talking about.

    Come up with a name, log in to the Guides, and create it!

    Funny, both Apple and Transitive claim that Transitive invented it.
