I think PPC will eventually disappear as being in *home computers*. And I'm talking about *general purpose* computers that can run software from the mind-bogglingly huge pool of debian packages, not closed appliances. I think there needs to be a perpetual diversity of architectures for the *home user*. I'm not so concerned about what chips are popular in industry and military, I'm more concerned about ensuring the continuing availability of a non-big-brother-ized computer that the common man or woman can get their hands on for cheap. Currently, all home computers with PPC chips are in Apple computers.

Well there are other home computers with PPC chips, like the one made my pegasos for example. See http://www.pegasosppc.com/
