Macs AND PC's

Mon Jun 6 10:50:00 CDT 1994

Much scientific software is chip-specific. E.g. PAUP 3.0 on macs and
Hennig86 on PC's. Emulation with the PowerPC is slower than the fastest
Mac (Quadra) or the fastest PC (Pentium). Until emulation exceeds the
native PC or Mac speed, those who struggle with major computation jobs
will need BOTH Mac and PC. I understand even the Alpha chip is relatively
slow during emulation.
