Apple CFO says 1,000 native Intel apps

updated 04:05 pm EST, Wed March 8, 2006

Unported Mac apps

At the Morgan Stanley Semiconductor and Systems Conference, Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer said that over 1,000 applications have been ported to the company's Intel-based Macs, but added that some key software is experiencing performance challenges. "For power users, they are going to notice a difference [in performance]. They may or may not find that acceptable," Oppenheimer said. The CFO aimed to reassure the market that major Mac applications are on schedule to be optimized for the Intel-based Mac platform, according to EETimes Online. "We have commitments from our major developers," Oppenheimer said. "They will release universal versions of their applications--not only Adobe, but also Quark and Microsoft." The executive restated Apple's plan of allowing Intel Macs to run virtual versions of Windows operating systems, and detailed recent security threats for Mac OS X as harmless, proof-of-concept threats that have had negligible impact.

    virtual versions of Win..

    "The executive restated Apple's plan of allowing Intel Macs to run virtual versions of Windows operating systems..."

    What does that mean, exactly? That you can a copy of Windows under Mac OS X (like MS Virtual PC), or that you can run Windows applications directly under Mac OS X, without Windows? Interesting comment...
