    Just wondering is there a way to see what applications are using Rosetta exactly? I want to find out so I can see if there are Universal versions to them but I'm not 100% what is Universal and what isn't.

    Thanks

    In Activity Monitor, check the Kind column near the right side on the list of processes.

    If you Get Info for an app you should see the architecture the app was written for under Kind. For instance, Kind: Application (PowerPC).

    PowerPC applications will use Rosetta.
