One thought on “Have you seen Bill’s Apple G5? Even Microsoft Bought G5’s”

  1. Yes I remember this story. Quite pathetic. The G5 were probably used for the early prototypes of the Xbox 360 which did a 360 turn from using intel based processors to Power PC processors.

    May be at the time this fact was a secret and M$ was pissed off that Sony would be able to guess it, since the PS3 was already announced and based on the PPC. I could be wrong though.
