Mac Rumors: Rosetta Improvements in 10.4.8, Leopard Build 9A303, Vista Release?:

Macworld reports that based on their benchmarks, Apple's Rosetta PowerPC emulation technology for Intel Macs has seen up to 30% improvements in the latest version of Mac OS X (10.4.8).

I'm not sure I understand putting that much personpower into a dead end. Apple seems pretty good about severing ties with what they've already decided to kill, from ADB ports to Java on Classic. Why not Rosetta? Who is using PowerPC software on an Intel Mac who needs the extra speed?

I guess I've not been keeping a close enough watch on Photoshop, etc, but thought those guys would still be trotting out the G5s.
