Adobe says univeral Photoshop CS2 binary will take too much time DailyTech reports that, according to Adobe engineer Scotty Byer, there are some major hurdles involved in making Photoshop a Universal application, obviating the possibility of a Universal CS2 release. In his blog, Byer states: "Now, Apple is doing an amazing job at catching up rapidly, but the truth is we don't yet have a shipping XCode in hand that handles a large application well. And switching compilers always involves more work than you would think in a code base of this size. [...] Now, I'm an engineer, and I'm all for getting products out in front of customers so they can use their machines to their fullest as soon as possible, but there is just no way putting out a Universal Binary of Photoshop CS2 would make any sort of sense."

A year later, in 1977, the Apple II microcomputer was born. It was not the first personal computer but it was the most successful -- a hit not just among engineers, but home users, too. Many credit the Apple II as the genesis of the personal computer revolution. Apple's cultural and technological influences only grew from there. Some of the Cupertino, California-based company's creations have been duds that failed to make it any money, but became a source of inspiration and income for others." More.
