in the past there seems to have been a lot of contention / claims from
Apple lovers that that no matter how weak the PowerPC chip was in
reality, their perception was that it was always faster than a Intel
box......

This is despite looking at tests showing a Dell workstation running
rings around a Apple workstation...

This article tends to suggest Apple's move will pay big dividends on
performance.....

But, in the mind of the powerpc proponents, the mac will become slower after
moving to intel. Very strange.

Hopefully cheaper!.....open up a huge array of GPL software, more
hardware choice......apart from the cpu and motherbaord, most of the
bits are PC lineage anyway.

10.4 is very nice....leaves XP for dead.....ditto KDE, Gnome.
