Being one of those 'apparent idiots' that followed Apples advice and 
spent literally hundreds of hours in altivec, I'm a bit peeved at the 
whole thing.  I must essentially redo _everything_.  And if so, what is 
my motivation to program it for the mac platform?  Furthermore, my 
maintenance plans on the XServe cluster I have will last longer than the 
ppc commitment and well beyond when Apple stops updating OSX-PPC.  So it 
makes me believe that I should switch everything I have now over to 
linux (YDL, FC, Gentoo-PPC).  I feel betrayed.
