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 but...

The content of this article was great. The bad grammar, spelling and sentences that make no sense at all hurt its credibility. How hard is it to read something before you post it or send it out? I am very knowledgeable in the technical areas covered in this article and I found it painful to read.

Again, the content was fantastic. The presentation was lacking.
