Thread: Updated software
04-20-2006, 04:23 PM #1PonocerousGuestUpdated software
just wondering, before i purchase my MBP, what popular software wont run on the intel chips? im interested in adobe video/audio/photo suites, dvd copying software, final cut, MS Office, etc... also what are the plans for updates?

everything will run. Some will just run slower than others. Eventually all software will be updated to run natively on the Intel Chip, right now the ones that haven't run under somethign called Rosetta, which emulates a PPC chip...so they run slower.

everything will run, it just depends on wether it will run under rosetta emulation or not (there are a few exceptions)
final cut studio will run natively
dvd copying use MTR but i dont think it is universal yet
office is not universal yet but it is word processing, how slow can it get under emulation?
check out the adobe FAQ's to find out what programs wont run on intel chips....adobe will not release a universal binary until its next major release, but i believe (and they hint to it in their FAQ) that this may happen at the begining of 07MoTM honor roll...
i dont remember

yea if your gonna be running apps that arent universal just shove the machine full of ram and it shouldnt be too bad
Apple, think different

aperture wouldn't run under rosetta for me. Its universal now so its fine but just a point.

Not everything will run (even on Rosetta), most will.
