Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y This article started life when I was asked to write a comparison of x86 and PowerPC CPUs for work. We produce PowerPC based systems and are often asked why we use PowerPC CPUs instead of x86 so a comparison is rather useful. While I have had an interest in CPUs for quite some time but I have never explored this issue in any detail so writing the document proved an interesting exercise. I thought my conclusions would be of interest to OSNews readers so I've done more research and written this new, rather more detailed article. This article is concerned with the technical differences between the families not the market differences.

I just read my own sentence and saw I made a mistake in my post. What I mean is that this is the frist time I have read something that explained the differnces in a way that made some sence to me. Most of the time is is more like listening to two preaches going at it over thier own particular beliefs.
