Re: about PowerPc - offtopic
How do you quantify "1/2 of the speed"? Console scrolling? I know that console is very slow on PPC, mostly because there is no hardware support of text in the
Framebuffer (as I understand it).
With accelerated X the X server speed is quite good.
Have you tested integer and fpu throughput?
