    I found this rather hilarious, even though I have nothing against Microsoft or windows. If this has been posted before then I apologize and feel free to delete it.

    Ya, the early dev. kits were all modified G5s. The 360 runs 3-cored PowerPC chips at 3.2 GHz, so Microsoft got the developers working on the POWER architecture early. The real reason that they weren't running at full power was the processor difference. Not the graphics cards.
    I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.
