    Will iLife & iWork 10 use the new core services in Snow Leopard?

    For instance will they use Grandcentral Station for better performance?

    Id like to see these apps go full 64bit and leverage some of the nice things in Snow Leopard. Of course that will likely mean they will run only on Snow Leopard....


    What do you think?

    I would honestly love to see 64-bit versions of especially numbers in iWork '10. I work with data sets that are rather big at times, and the added benefit and speed of a 64-bit version would be amazing, although that would mean that I have to wait another year, and use excel for my spreadsheets.

    Of course they will. They'd be nuts if they didn't, and it'll be an additional selling point (MOAR SPEED) too. They also need to set a good example to other developers, who aren't going to be impressed if Apple doesn't make use of their own shiny new APIs.

    I agree with you guys, but I am wondering if in the past new versions of iLife/iWork have required the newest OS rev to work.???

    iWork 09 could run on 10.4.11. iLife 09 needed 10.5 point something.
