	Please, forgive my ignorance on the subject, but I see that
	lately people are talking more and more about such boards for
	PowerPC's and I read a tiny bit (very tiny) about such boards
	and they are basically an ATX motherboard with a PPC CPU stuck
	on them, right?

	If that is correct, what would the benefits of using one of
	those machines? Is it cheaper than purchasing a x86 system
	with equivalent horse-power? Is it just the techno-lust of
	using a PowerPC CPU?

	These are sincere questions. Please educate me.

	Thanks for any comments, Roger...
