Could this be good news?
Did apple know this was going to happen and wanted it to?
Does this mean more PPC chips and cheaper prices?
Sounds exciting.:eek:

I think it's good news. The more companies that make boxes running PowerPC processors, the better. Mac users will still prefer to buy Apple boxes with OS X, but the wider usage of the PowerPC processor will mean lower prices.

True true..
If IBM could use its power and get a PPC linux version of Adobe appz, apple would be screwed!
