Subject Re: [Studio] Should we drop support for the Linux PPC version of Studio?
Date Tue, 18 Aug 2009 08:12:50 GMT
Good point Pierre-Arnaud

Just having a look at Eclipse download page [1] I can't find any PPC version. But for Mac
a new one appeared (Cocoa).
ATM I think that we only support Carbon, right?

+1 removing PPC
What about the Mac Cocoa?
