I was just reading around tonight and came across the follwoing and was wondering if any of us had any idea about this project underway back in 2005 when apple made the intel switch. http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,1875302,00.asp While dual booting is nice, i am still one that was and still is against the intel mac switch, and was wondering evetyone's thoughts on that news. a dual core 2ghz G5 running at 5-13 watts. PA Semi is a group of industry vets that formed this new company and licensed the PowerPC architecture from IBM. Granted, there's no guarentee that this thing would've/will be produced without problems, but the fact remains that my fear that the PPC will advance faster than Intel is still here. Intel can easily slip back into a funk like they were in a year or 2 ago. Will Apple, now that they are making everything universal, use multiplatforms? PPC and Intel macs sold side by side depending on which chip is better at a given time? I know IBM has had some bumps in the road, but the entire industry hit a bump a year or so ago. http://www.edn.com/article/CA6277164.html?partner=enews&nid=2019 more information. i know, i know, not till late 2006 and we couldnt wait that long, but i am beginning to think apple made a mistake in the long run.
