i.e., you didn't. Words. They're powerful tools.
Re-read T'hain Esh Kelch's post and replace the final "Intel - Classic" with "Intel: Classic". Then I think you'll understand what he's saying (i.e., that OS9/Classic doesn't run on OSX/Intel and thus would not have been a viable transition to OS X; without Classic, Apple would have a hard time convincing users to move to OS X).
Oh, that's an interesting take on events! Maybe Steve's seeing it as a win/win situation: He eventually got what he wanted (Intel chips) and IBM got what it wanted (the games console business) and Apple and IBM both got respect again in the meantime. Well, except for the 3 GHz fiasco...
It would have been cheaper and easier overall, but without OS X being a proven entity in 1999, were Adobe & MS too averse to risk to make the double jump back then? Didn't both Microsoft and Adobe balk at migrating to the then-unproven OS X? Didn't they push hard for Carbon so they'd have to change their apps as little as possible for OS X? Would Adobe & MS have rewritten their code for OS X and for X86 all at once? How hard would that have been without XCode in 1999?...
And I don't want a Photoshop clone, much as this poster said: http://discussions.apple.com/thread....58240&tstart=0
You mean, ACR, right?
I thought you were one of the people who agreed that Aperture was a complement to Photoshop and not a replacement. Must've misremembered.
The things that you describe as so essential are all very, very recent innovations. DNG is barely a year old:http://www.adobe.com/aboutadobe/pres...DNGQUOTES.html Curves and sophisticated sharpening were only added to ACR in version 3.0: mere months ago. Photographers have been using ACR without these tools for several years (since PS 7 and ACR 1).If Adobe added them to ACR 3.0, what makes them so hard to add to Aperture? I don't understand your argument. Are they useful...
This is no different from ACR. If you export from ACR to PSD, tweak it, print it, and show it to the customer, and then decide the exposure or white point need to change, you need to go back to ACR and generate it again. If you've upgraded ACR, you may very well get a different PSD. I agree that this can be an issue (as I said, I ran across it myself), but ACR and Aperture act exactly the same way in this regard. [Edit] Personally, I think the raw converters themselves...
No it doesn't sound lame to me. All the FUD you're spreading was spread the same way when DVDSP and FCP 1.0 came out. Look where they are now. Apple doesn't give in easily. Throwing more engineers at a problem doesn't solve it faster. It's the old "you can't deliver a baby with 2 women and 4.5 months" issue. No curves? No threshold on unsharp mask? These were only added to ACR in the last 6 months. If people scream Apple will add them. It doesn't make the product...
