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.

(don't worry about it, "goo" doesn't know what he's talking about, but you have to give it to him, he talks a good game!!)

And hey, Nicholas, that is one of the better, factual, non-troll articles that have been here in a while.

You have to expect the heat (sorry, bad pun) from the x86's when you point out the facts to them.
