I'm not shy about voicing criticism (see my previous post!) but I have to say that in this regard you are #1 in my book, and there are some other third-party software vendors out there who may not be getting more money from me any time soon! I'm especially thinking of a certain vendor which for years tried to obfuscate the fact that they were not shipping Intel-based software by making a Universal version of their launcher application, but leaving the software that did all the work PowerPC only. Naturally, Intel support could only be provided in a new major release (read: major upgrade price), and not available until the Lion timeframe!
