    According to the OSX x86 project, rosetta also emulates software to process altivec instructions!!! So theoretically ALL programs for OSX should be able to be emulated after the switch to intel!

    I thought this was the whole point of Rosetta.

    rosetta was only thought to support the PPC instruction set with no altivec support

    Now for the other shoe to drop...

    Apple will announce they are going to continue support of Classic for all those legacy applications and gigas of gigabytes of data at corporations, educational institutions and in home users hands.

    Apple's stock surges 14.875 points before setting at +12.125 for the day in trading.
