Take a look at this, not updated recently but a fascinating view from "down under".

excellent resource.. there is one quote there that im not entirely happy with though.. they claim that by dfinition a pc uses a x86cpu.
i thought a pc was just a Personal computer therfore an apple mac IS a pc but they claim it isnt... just strikes me as odd thats all.. can anyone clear this up?

i think by definition, a PC is a Personal Computer that is derived from IBM's original 'IBM PC'. So everything that uses a 8088-CPU and its successors(=today's x86-chips) could be called a 'PC'

if that is true then surely "pc" is as much of a trademark as "ibm" if not then a "pc" is defined by its use. so an amstrad an applemac a powerpc are all "pc's".
someone slap me if my logic is flawed or if im missing something obvious

PC is exactly what it says it is - a Personal Computer. This can be any personal computer - be is IBM, Apple or even one with non IBM archetecture. ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Apple, are just types of PC's, even though they were not really around when the PC catchphrase came out.

Brian is speaking some strange language... /me looks confuzzored

it's not a bad site...for more technical stuff, sandpile.org is the way to go.

also, it doesn't look like RedHill has been updated in quite some time.

cheers,

dave

'it was AMD that first brought competition to the CPU industry, and AMD that are now the only remaining barrier against monopoly.'
