With Steve Jobs announcing the 'mac pro' 3 days ago the 'transition is complete'. Well, it is for Apple. Over a year ago the announcement was made that Apple will be switching over to Intel (shock, horror, at the time), and the developers received a loaned intel mac with software pack. OK, so the developers have had lots of time to get their software Intel native, so they really don't have any excuses not to have it ready. Apple have completely transitioned their hardware, operating sytem, and software application in just 210 days, so the question is this: What the hell have the software developers been doing during this time? For me, these applications are essential to run natively: 1. Adobe Photoshop (in fact most of the Creative suite) 2. Macromedia (now Adobe of course) Dreamweaver 3. Avid Xpress Pro DV 4. Sorenson media (codecs and compression suite) What essential apps are you in need of to run natively? What are you opinions regarding the missing 'essential apps'? One thing's for sure - Apple must be p'd off with the ignorance from some of these companies.
