Apple "By now you have probably figured out that we aren't releasing Universal Binaries of our current application versions. If you haven't, all you need to know is pretty explicitly spelled out here [.pdf]. 'But, c'mon', I hear people saying, 'Steve said it was just a recompile!' Or, 'Back during the PowerPC transition, you guys released a patch!' Well, this time is different. And I really wish it weren't."

well... Shake is used on their Power macs more than their powerbooks, so, they are waiting perhaps?

I'm just point out that your argument is not valid due to Mathmatica being ported over to UB easily.

...and we have data that we can verify regarding the code size of Mathematcia and Photoshop? Or is it just rampant speculation?

I have ported two major Mac apps to MachO and Intel, and my experience with Xcode is that it's nowhere nearly as good at handling large projects as VS and CW are. What are your experiences?
