I downloaded the Beta CS3 and noticed something odd. It's veeery slow and having a look at the components, much of the software still runs in Rosetta. Whilst the main app is universal, many of the filters and standalone components are PowerPC based.

If you have the beta, check out:

/Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS3/Samples/Droplets/Drop Shadow Frame.exe

/Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS3/Samples/Droplets/Constrain to 64 pixels.exe

/Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS3/Samples/Droplets/Save As Photoshop PDF.exe

/Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS3/Samples/Droplets/Save As JPEG Medium.exe

/Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS3/Samples/Droplets/Constrain to 300 pixels.exe

/Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS3/Samples/Droplets/Make Sepia Tone.exe

They're all Rosetta/PowerPC executables. The list goes on and on. Thoughts?

.exe? Those are Windows executables, not PowerPC. You sure you downloaded the Mac version ;)

Very funny... :tusks:

Well they're on my system and they're identified as PowerPC apps...

It's a beta, so the core program is probably Universal, whereas the add ons are probably from CS2 and run under Rosetta.

The final version of all the CS3 apps are completely Universal.
