Linux When Apple Computer announced in June that it planned to move to Intel chips, one of the companies left in the lurch was Terra Soft Solutions. This week, Terra Soft is announcing it has filled some of the void created by Apple's move. Under a new deal, Terra Soft will resell PowerPC-based servers from Mercury Computer Systems. Mercury's XR9 systems use the same G5 chip as Xserve, but at 2.4GHz, the chips are slightly faster than those used in Apple's servers.

you guys are right. the PPC market is exploding right now. Playstation,Xbox and Nintendo consoles will add millions of new users. But I still thinking that the desktop market will die. All I can think of right now is Amiga OS 4 using PPC arquitecture. Besides that, there is nothing really....I guess the servers market will do good.

I just want to see OS X running on my screen. I thought the Apple market was going to crash during this transition period and it has been completely the opposite. The avg user does not care about the arquitecture, only geeks. there is where the money is.
show me the money.

Don't forget the Pegasos I/II/ODW-- they probably outsell the Amiga big time. Not sure though on the sales fgures.
