Adobe CEO on MacTel
Porting Creative Suite to "MacTel" as Steve Jobs might like developers to believe, Adobe CEO Bruce Chizen said during an interview with CNET News.com. "Steve (Jobs) likes to trivialize the process and make it seem easy, but moving the apps over is not that easy...Getting over to MacTel is work." However, Chizen remains optimistic about the end result: "I think in the long run it's going to be great because what the users will get is better performance...and greater value. At Adobe, we tend to optimize for Intel today on the Windows side. The fact that we'll be able to optimize for Intel cross-platform will make it even better for us." He said not to expect a version of the company's Creative Suite for Mac OS X on Intel until late 2006 or early 2007, the same time Apple's hardware transition will be complete.
