exactly! they should be harping on the superior usefulness of the system, what it can do, and why it does it better. simply saying their new machine is fast is a bit banal and is not going to motivate anyone. everyone and their brother's uncle says their computers are fast, so what?Can anyone honestly remember a time when Apple had such an avalanche of software being ported to the Mac OS? There's a reason for it, I think.
Maybe so. But let's root for the destruction of all things Microsoft and Intel, anyway. If we close our eyes and wish real hard, maybe it'll come true.Gerbill,
The claim that the x86 architecture is going to hit a brick wall real soon now is about as old as the claim that Apple is going to go under real soon now. AMD, with the Opteron and the Athlon 64, seems to think that the x86 architecture still has some life left in it.
Oh, and it looks like the next XBox will use a CPU designed by Microsoft and not a PowerPC CPU. It seems Microsoft is just licensing technology from IBM, not an entire CPU.
