why doesn't apple put the power 4 into their xservers? price? heat? i mean those machines would kick the opterons butt. For some reason i don't like AMD, and i love intel. But i also like Apple, and IBM. So i wouldn't mind seeing AMD go away, and force intel and IBM to compete. But i'm getting off topic. What are the chances of us seeing a power4/5 system using OSX? Why must we use a stripped down version of it (ppc970). However, if I am wrong that the ppc970 is a stripped down version of the power4, then tell me... but i think it is.

Definately Price and Heat. Just wondering if the thread about the relationship of Apple and IBM may mean that IBM will have an OS X vesion for the Power 4 Servers.[URL=http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?threadid=25871] I know that I am tring to look into a crystal ball that has cracks all over. But it is a thought....
