It will have have been more like about half a year really. That being said, from what I've heard most major companies are already mostly done. Some smaller devs may end up having to wait until they have their own IntelliMacs to test on as not everyone can afford a test machine.

With the exclusion of the major players (like Adobe), there are 3rd applications that have already been compiled for both PowerPC and x86. To see this, from OS X 10.4.3, "Get Info" on any application, and then choose "More info". There, it should list the "Architecture[s]" that the application has been compiled for. Although the majority of my apps state PowerPC, there are a couple (BBEdit, CuberDuck) that show PowerPC, x86.
