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 must say, I am impressed at the way that you so quickly shifted the focus from heat and energy to the vast expense involved in Mac ownership!!

A beautiful shift from one straw-man to the other.

(although I think California might disagree with you on the "Electricity is cheap" argument)

Again, a quite skillful sleight of hand, congrats!!!!
