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."

This is pure nonsense, as Photoshop performance on Apple systems is the killer app of them. I think they are in love with certain company or something, this radical change is weird.

I think Apple is probably doing negotiations in some way with Adobe for trying to resolve this. If not, Apple will purchase a small companies with quite interesting alternatives to Adobe products and improving it a lot by brute force (a lot more devs in the team) or a new development from scratch (less probably knowing the typical Apple's way).

This was my first thought when I read this also. Adobe needed to assert itself after the Flash / iPhone incident.
