Apple One of the big unknowns of the Apple Switch that not many people are talking about right now is Rosetta, the translation software that Intel-based Macs will use to run legacy PPC binaries. Prior to the release of the first Intel-based Mac it's difficult to assess just what kind of performance Rosetta will yield on the majority of legacy OS X software. Will most legacy PPC apps be usable? Mostly usable? Barely usable?

Didn't Asa (mac firefox guy) say that the PowerPc version of Firefox run faster on the apple development box (Intel) than on a native dual 2.5 Ghz G5? I found that rather amusing. Amusing excpet for that fact I have a dual 1.8 that will be smoked by the Intel Macs....
