software in general works on both with no problems. do you have any kind of software in mind ?

In general that is indeed the case. But at least a while back there were cases..

So, out of the curiosity, how is it these days for example with Discreet products? I have never used, nor do I see such future, Lustre for one. A time back I did read it was Intel only though. How about Smoke under Linux? And so on, I am sure there at least were software from other companies than Autodesk/Discreet too.

It would be interesting to know if there are programs that do not work on other manufacturers processors. I guess it is more that they are not guaranteed to work (SSE stuff or something) and these are rather special cases, but none the less it would be educational to know.
