 Porting BBEdit to Universal Binary

Short but informative interview about porting BBEdit to Universal binary so that it will work on both PowerPC and Intel based macs.

"How hard it was to port BBEdit to UB?
The initial bring-up was very fast - we had it up and running about 24 hours after the announcement at WWDC. The original statements from Apple might lead one to believe that non-Cocoa applications would be difficult to port, but our experience indicates that well-maintained code and best-practices disciplines do more to facilitate an easy port than the use (or not) of any particular set of APIs."
