Uhl in Eagle, ID – I received this warning message today when I launched Adobe Bridge CS3 for the first time on my new computer, a Dell Studio XPS 435T. I thought it was pretty funny that it told me my processor was not compatible, even though it’s an Intel Core i7 920, one of the fastest processors currently on the market.
Lesson for you software developers: Don’t hard code specific processor versions into your product!
Secondly, any sort of system check is better done before the product is installed, not after. That way the user hasn’t wasted any time if they postpone the install until they upgrade their hardware, or, decide to install it on a different machine altogether. Anyway, it made me chuckle when I read it. And yes, Adobe Bridge runs just fine on my new computer.
