    I don't have a MacIntel yet, but how can you tell if an app is using Rosetta or not? Does an icon appear, like for Mac OS 9 emulation? Or in most cases, you cannot tell at all?

    I don't know if it does anything special because I don't have one. I do know you can "get info" on an app and it will tell you what architecture it is built for. If it only says PowerPC, then you are using Rosetta.

    I have run some PPC apps under rosetta and I have not noticed any visible indication.
