It is a good sign that some developers from Adobe and Microsoft are talking about why there aren't Universal versions of their products. I don't think anyone thought that this would be an easy thing to do for complicated applications like Office or Photoshop, but clearly there is demand and the companies know that.

Rick Schaut, of the Mac BU (Microsoft's Mac development team, and the largest Mac developer right after Apple) takes some time to dispel some myths about the transition. Folks, these apps are huge, complicated messes and in order to get them running natively on Intel Mac requires a change in the very way these applications are compiled. Not something anyone should rush into.
