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."

Power Shift

10 years ago, when Apple was readying the first release of Mac OS X, Apple actually didn't want to do Carbon. Adobe then said to Apple that Mac support for all Adobe applications would be dropped if Apple didn't comply.

Now Adobe is willing to rewrite. Interesting how the attitude of Adobe changes when MS enters direct competition (XPS vs. PDF, Silverlight vs. Flash, Expression vs. Creative Suite) and Adobe actually needs its user base to diversify, becaus if Adobe forced all users to go Windows-only it would just be a matter of time they prefer MS' own stuff. First porting Premiere etc. back to Mac OS X and now this.

It's probably more like they had a long time to prepare instead of something more instant?
