Big shame, narrowing of the market, and probably the end of the PowerPC.

I wouldn't count the PowerPC out entirely, as it will continue to be used in game platforms (and maybe other embedded platforms?). But yes, in the desktop hardware market, it seems there's now only one game in town.

The Xbox 360 has 3 Power PC cores J

While this is big news to some people, please keep postings to this list relevant to LLVM.

LLVM will support PowerPC for a very long time, even if Apple magically decided to drop PPC tommorow (which, obviously, it isn't).
