Photoshop Compiler Conversion

Being a software engineer working on Photoshop doesn’t sound like a lot of fun these days. I’d say they have a good long 9- to 12-month slog in front of them. And at the end of it, who knows what they’ll have. It’s a complete re-write of a very large desktop app. Good luck y’all.
Update: A Microsoft developer in the Mac business unit posts his experiences. The between-the-lines interpretation of these two posts is that Apple’s tool set, Xcode, has been focused on small developers to help them get lots of applications out for OS X. Now, they’re scrambling on making Xcode suitable for hundred-person development teams and very large applications. This is the heavy lifting of software engineering and makes most Web 2.0 app development seem like child’s play.
