Re: ppc vs. i386

> debian ppc is slow compared to debian i386

So what? Debian/i386 is slow compared to Debian/alpha I guess. Debian on a
386 sure is hell of a lot slower than Debian on my G3/400. What exactly is
your point here? 

If you're interested (and not just trolling) I can give you some CPU
benchmarks run with a floating point intensive number crunching
application to compare a G3/400 with a range of Intel machines (PI/233 to
PIII/500 currently). 

> what do u think about...?

I'm sooooo glad I don't have to cope with crap like BIOS or Lilo on PPC,
I'd gladly take a minor performance hit of 6-12%.
