    Good PPC emulation on x86

    Actually The Itanium isn't a RISC proccessor. It uses a new type of instruction set called VLWID, and I was not comparing Intel crap to RISC architecture. I was mainly speaking of the Athlon, which is the most RISC-like of all x86 processors. Besides, Motorola and AMD have been working on all...

    Good PPC emulation on x86

    I hate to burst the bubble, but if this is true for the time being, it might not be for long. PC chipsets like nVidia's n-force not only work for AMD chips, but they are also being produced for Intel's cpu's, like the p!!! in the xBox. But there was also rumor that the chipset could be adopted...

    My uncle has 2 jaz drives. They suck. The orb drives are faster, just as reliable, and cheaper. I've seen MO drives. Just like a cdr. A little slower, can be used like a floppy. Not worth it. Microdisks? Never heard of them. Friend has an internal superdisk drive. It rocks. A little...

    No, he's right AK. Sony made MD data drives for a while. They looked like those real old IBM external 1x cd-rom drives(with the cd-caddies). It was an expensive solution. The only reason why you can squeeze all that music on an MD is because or the audio format. ATRAC II I believe. They...

    intel based and OSX

    Personally I think that Apple should compile Darwin for the x86 (come on. Don't us I*tel, AMD will kick their ass anyday) because then developers will be able to compile their software on a variety of platforms and be able to test them before releasing them to the public. They could inclused...
