Why open ppc?

Why are people sticking with PPC over x86? Since the major players that used sparc and ppc have moved to x86 for the workstation, maybe its time drop ppc?

I know I waited forever for a cheap PPC board to run Amiga alternative OS's on a modern cpu, and is the PPC 970 it?

Limited operating systems, limited hardware support, limited software, expensive prices.

And Intel and AMD comes out with 4 core cpu's next month.
