No I don't think this is a valid excuse, just as little, as for developers for MacOS X software, not to provide Intel binaries. This is especially valid for ressource hungry software like software for EDA, CAE, CAM ... So running this software with translation software is a proof of concept, but for production, native software is still required.

Given Adobes past actions in regards to porting (exampl being frammaker on Linux), I am very skeptical as to whether they're willing to port anything or any substantial value to Solaris, let alone any other platform.
