I was browsing around to see all the new articles about the newly announced 970 powermacs and came across one on AMD Zone. I was thinking it was going to be a article saying "close Apple, but the market will move on" (seen many of those), but it ended up disagreing with this guy on some of his points. http://www.amdzone.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=1296 First he comes to the conclusion that the G5 is a workstation not a desktop (how conveinent for his whole article), and then it seemed to go iinto a mostly bashing article. Lets say it went iinto Apple is 1.9% market share (?), Apple follows in everything, Apple takes PC tech and uses it (ok then how would people even think of a mac- aka hardware standards?). Also the thing about firewire liscensing- but I don't know how apple could do anymore than say the standard was free- Intel was charging $1 a port for USB- Apple was only charging $.25 for each firewire port- yet Intel was somehow ticked that they had to pay $.25 per port even though Apple was paying $1 per USB port. Then comes the using of Hypertransport without thanking AMD and that its all a big way for Apple to gloat, and a few other Apple did this and that. The Spec results were run on GCC compiler which is open on all platforms- then the results from Intels own compilers- eck, GCC was run so that all platforms could be judged off the same compiler (anyone know if there is a big difference on GCC for X86 and PPC?). Sure the reality distortion feild of jobs distorts some not all mac users are blind zealots to the computer world. Basically it leads to Apple copies this, doesn't thank this company, and is always blowing steam up people's bums. What are other peoples thought on this article? P.S.- IBM-Apple and Motorola designed the PPC which is based of the Power architecture- the article's writer thinks that apple has nothing to do with chip design and is another dell that simply buys chips, Ugh I just didn't sit well with this article.
