Walt Mossberg, who writes for the Wall Street Journal, has always been a fair and reasonable critic of Apple and it’s computers – no apologist but not an attacker either.
So he has written an article with his (favourable) opinion of the new Intel iMac. More importantly he also threw at it the most important pieces of software for me at home and work – Eudora, Firefox, Office and Adobe reader and found they all run fine under Rosetta.
He also reports that tasks using the iApps and operating system are considerably faster on the new Mac, just as we would expect with software re-compiled for the Intel processor.
Great news, thanks Walt.
