IBM In Part 1 of this series you saw how programs on the POWER5 processor work using the 64-bit PowerPC instruction set, then in Part 2 you learned how the PowerPC instruction set addresses memory, and how to do position-independent code. In this article, you learn how to use the very powerful condition and branch instructions available in the PowerPC instruction set.

grab a second-hand power4 (or even power5) workstation on ebay. ;-) those are cheaper than new power5+ workstations from IBM, but still quite fast.

There is also Genesi, that produce the Open Server Workstation "in the near future" ( ;) ). That would be a very reasonable computer with enough power for todays applications.

Although I must admit, that it would be great to have more choices...
