Consider how long the PowerPC has been in production. IBM has invested literally billions in it's development and production. During that time they have certainly learned a thing or two about 64bit computing that Intel will likely still need to learn. On the other hand Intel has probably benefitted from disigning their 64bit chip after technology had progressed several years from where IBM started. I'd say they are likely going to wait for the chips to fall (pun intended) before they commit one way or the other. - Larry -- Larry Bolhuis | What do You want to Reload today?
