Maybe it’s because it took a little longer than some would have like for Adobe’s Creative Suite to run natively on Intel Macs, but when Adobe Chief Executive Bruce Chizen was quoted as saying…
CS3 hasn’t fully been tested under Leopard. If it doesn’t work, we will make the necessary adjustments.
…the Mac web went a little nuts about it.
Adobe blogger John Nack has a less frantic interpretation that should help us Mac-using graphics types relax a bit about the future of Adobe and Apple.
Here’s my take: It’s impossible to say that something has been “fully tested” on a platform that is not yet finished. Therefore, until Leopard ships (expected this Fall), Adobe can’t say with confidence that everything is A-OK. Once Leopard hits the streets, if the various product teams discover that something isn’t working well on the new OS, they’ll work on addressing the problem.
There is clearly no need for alarm. If these two Abode staffers had said something like, “If the Adobe Creative Suite turns out to not work on Mac OS X 10.5, I guess people on the Mac platform are going to be SOL. Good thing you can run Windows on Macs now, huh?”
Now that would be cause for concern.
