    xBox 360 PPC vs PowerMac PPC

    Pear PC... this is/was an emulator to let users run OSX on an x86 PC. I ran early versions (Summer 04) and it took 6 hours to install 10.2.8 and had all the athletic agility of a snail with two bags of heavy shopping. Even the developers of Pear said it ran at 10% the speed of your basic G4...

I like to know what I am installing rather than have that...
