    I know ARM will not be coming to the desktop and personal computers for a while, well too bad. So I need to pick. I have decided when times come to be nicer, and I feel like it, and once I get the time where it will be useful, as I have no time yet. I will get one. Until then, I don't think so lol. But what do I really want to talk about. Somehow while writing a comment, I analytically compared an infinite paradox with Apple™ Incorporated.

    Why? First, we all know the PowerPerformanceComputing(PPC) story. Well if you don't here it is. Apple made an alliance with Motorola, and IBM. This was the AIM alliance. Well, first Motorola made all the components(wifi cards etc.), IBM made motherboards and processors, and Apple paid. Well, this all started in 1991. Then Adobe tried to get Apple to give in. They did this by saying that Flash™ is an open-source project, while neither of them are indeed. So after a while, Flash™ has been to work as a really bad product on most pre-Intel Macintoshes, and things were done to hurt Adobe's business too you know.

    First Apple tried converting the whole web to HTML5 and CSS, and something else. Well it's called WebKit, and I highly recommend looking it up. YouTube has a HTML5 layout called fallback, and it looks greater then Flash Youtube and is quicker on my Flash disabled browser. So either way shots have been taken, and now, Apple™ and Adobe™ will probably never come to par with eachother, and Flash™ will be left out of many iOS devices. Well why am I bringing this up if I am an open-sourcy at heart. Well the same thing happens here. Look at Google™ and Canonical™, I don't know, if there really is any rubbing between them. I do know that at a few occasions, Google wanted the PC world to move to ARM with Android 5.0, soon to be released. While Canonical wants Intel and AMD to stay as the top.

    The reason is many of Canonical™'s legacy apps are written for x86. Same with Apple and Microsoft. Well, the good thing is Google released 4 for phones and 5 for Netbooks/Tablets. Just like they did with 2/3, they are doing for 4/5. Ofcourse the phone versions work on anything, they always want to try moving the world to ARM. They have a partnership with MIPS. I don't think MIPS is really the way to go, because we have all 3 categories:

Top level servers: PPC then Intel's Xeon… Remember GPU power means nothing in Servers
High Level PCs: Intel and AMD
Low Level Hi efficiency: ARM

    Now where can ARM fit in here? Well back to the AIM Alliance.

    Why did Apple move to Intel. Well in 2000, the G3/4 line was really doing great the iPad offering perhaps t and were beating Intel. By 2003, Intel said, instead of trying to beat them in processors, let's beat them in motherboards, and better GPUs. Remember computers need a good Mobo and GPU for good use. So Intel started to push towards making great motherboards. They did, and by 2007 their motherboards surpassed IBM's. Well IBM's processors still are ahead of Intel's, their motherboards are not. This ended the AIM alliance after about 15 years. I really recommend clicking on the blue or purple link and reading it, it's short too ;).

    Well, this was before OS X, this was OS IX. Well this was 13 years before Ubuntu and actually the year Linux was written(or completed). Well back to me, if only I wasn't so selfish, well I think if times get just a tad better, where I can drop a $200, without having hesitations, I will get a G4 Powerbook. What? Well Firefox™ just crashed, that's the 3rd time since I got Ubuntu 11.04, which was April 14th. So I can't complain, because that was an unusual crash. I got to stop clicking the update button, I mean it's like after Firefox 4, things got less stable. I never had a single crash in Firefox 4, no exaggeration. I swear. I got about 3/4 in every version after. Well I really can't complain, but I will haha.

    I see my previous paragraph and I am not going to revise it, because I kind of think you'll get a lot of humour out of it. Well I will dual-boot Ubuntu and OS X Leopard on it, and also an SSD. I also plan on using that Firewire. I like other things. Without diversity, then we have lost evolution. I thought if I make a nice line, it'd sound good, but it sounds horrifying. Well, I plan on connecting nice Firewire external hard discs. It can be an iBook or a Powerbook, because an SSD will make it as fast as a new computer. I plan on doing all my work on it. I mean, I can always make a Hackintosh, but I'd rather take the laptop. Also Hackintoshes, are all Intel, atleast that I know of. There is no PPC hackintosh or ARM.

    I can see I went through a lot, and should stop before I keep going on my selfish wants lol. But
