[5:00 PM] PowerPC Winning CNN AMD/Intel/PowerPC Poll

In an article extolling the virtues of the Athlon processor from AMD, CNN is offering a poll asking what processor your next computer will have. Surprisingly Motorola/Apple (i.e. PowerPC) is offered as a choice. Even more surprisingly, Motorola/Apple is winning hands down. So far.

We don't normally mention polls at The Mac Observer, but this is one of the rare fun ones that is not overly gratuitous. Therefore, GO VOTE FOR THE MAC! Keep in mind that, unlike a professional market Internet Survey, Internet "polls" are not a scientific survey. Still, it's fun to see Apple and Motorola spanking Intel as the power of the online Mac community makes its networking presence known.

FYI, The Athlon processor from AMD is the first one to offer a serious threat to Intel for market share in the PC world. Thanks to Observer George Cole for bringing this poll to our attention.
