That's the best description of Apple "Open"Firmware I've ever heard.
Say, does anybody know the diff between
powerpc rs64-II (ibm)
powerpc rs64-III (ibm)
powerpc rs64-IV (ibm)
powerpc g3 (750)
powerpc g4 (7400)
powerpc-II (ibm) (a misprint maybe?)
I'm trying to track down some benchmark data, but I see nothing so
far for the 750 or 7400, only the 604e, the powerpc-II (??), the
rs64-2 and 3. do either of these two latter share any kind of core
with the g3? prolly not, i would guess.
or better yet, what ibm processor is closest to g3/g4 series? I
haven't been able to find a good explanation of this anywhere on the
