No WONDER Apple's Powermac upgrade sucked....

... Why put all that work into a dead platform?

And you wonder why folks (like me) were beating the Cocoa drum and dissing Carbon so bad for so long.. Here is one reason. Cocoa framework apps port in 2 days with 20 lines of code changed (Mathematica 5). Carbon? A lot longer and harder.

Still, AMD was the better choice, but I bet Apple's getting mad subsidies from Chipzilla... I wonder if they'll actually advertise Powermacs, and if so, do they get the Intel bong?

UPDATE: BTW, the censors at Apple's discussions site must be playing turbo whack-a-mole.. Thread after thread discussing the switch is getting clipped...
