Graphics, User Interfaces From John Nack's blog: "In the interest of giving customers guidance as early as possible, we have some news to share on this point: in addition to offering 32-bit-native versions for Mac OS X and 32-bit Windows, just as we do today, we plan to ship the next version of Photoshop as 64-bit-native for Windows 64-bit OSes only."

They're not stopping development of Photoshop on the Mac. From the article:

We will get there, but not in CS4. (Our goal is to ship a [u]64-bit Mac version with Photoshop CS5[/u], but we’ll be better able to assess that goal as we get farther along in the development process.)

What this means is that the change from Carbon to Cocoa is taking longer than expected, and a 64 bit version of CS4 is not going to be available. Instead, users will need to wait till CS5 is released.

This should be very interesting to watch. Will Apple buy out other companies and roll their own Photoshop equivalent? Aperture is already competing with Lightroom, so the idea of Apple rolling their own Photoshop competitor isn't so far fetched.
