    AMD users are hardcore pc users who know that AMD chips are way better than intels. AMD users also all share the same idea that "duh, macs are gay!". Wait a minute, now that I think of it...all pc users think that.

    yes cow, while that may be true, the first Itanium is going to be in a laptop... not exactly "server material" if you know what I mean...

    processors geared towards servers often don't have the highest MHz ratings on the market but usually have insane cache and an insane price tag. Good examples are the Alphas, P3 Zeons, and even the Athlon 4 (Palomino - the initial server versions have lower clocks than their consumer counterparts or even the TBirds).

    heh. actually, by that criteria the G4 would be an insane server processor... and it is (when you're running OS X to take full use).

    Powerhouse, apples marketshare is probably similar to AMD's, around 12-18% or so, and another thing you guys failed to mention earlier about computer illiterate consumers is that Mac's don't have Windows. Windows is in over 90% of offices so naturally 90% (or close to that) will buy Windows boxes because it's the same. We don't need Mac OS to dominate, just give us a solid 25% marketshare and we'll do fine, ok..maybe 30, no wait 35...ah hell 40% :D

    Nothing is really faster at everything. Every design has it's own advantages. I got a pc now because there is nothing I would want to do on a mac.

    I see.

    Out of curiosity, do you play counter-strike?

    Stop picking on the little brother while big brother is gone!

    Jakeman's going to have a fit when he comes back....

    ...now that I think about it, maybe not.
