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.

Good Article

A very good article and thoroughly enjoyable. Its just a real shame that a minority of people on OSNews seem to have massive insecurities and are nit picking tiny little holes because they want to be the cleverest.

Well get over it, grow up and I await reading your absolutely perfect in every way articles that you manage to explain the entire concepts and history of CPU in full detail, never making one mistake (not even a typo) and fit it into a 5 page document. Go on I dare you.

Oh, and don't forget to reference all of your sources in a comprehensive bibliography making sure that none of the websites you referenced are ever going to be down!
