Apple: 4000 Universal apps

More than 4000 applications are now available as Universal Binaries for native performance on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs and there have been more than one million downloads of Apple's Boot Camp software. The company said that it expects that 80 percent of 500 "most important applications" will be available as Universal applications by the end of the year, but indicated that some professionals may be waiting to purchase Macs on Universal version of leading products such as Adobe's Creative Suite, which is now expected in the first half of next year. While most applications run under the company's Rosetta technology in Mac OS X Tiger, the software has performance bottlenecks. In addition, the company said that it had more than 1 million people had download its Boot Camp software, which still in beta and expected to be released alongside Mac OS X Leopard in the Spring of next year. (Boot Camp, last updated for Core 2 Duo-enabled Macs in mid-September, allows Mac users to run Windows.)
