Then why are Xbox2 dev kits Mac G5 based??

In reply to Rob Enderle
The Xbox2 will be based on PowerPC. The early Dev Kits run on Mac G5s with a special WinNT kernal.
There's no reason why MS would make developers use G5 Macs if it wasn't going to stay PowerPC.
It may not be "the" Apple G5 970 chip, but it certainly will be a Power5 variant.

How do you feel about government regulation of the U.S. tech industry?
Big tech companies are abusing their monopoly power and must be reined in.
Stronger regulations to protect consumer data definitely are needed.
Regulations stifle innovation and should be kept to the barest minimum.
Over-regulation could give China and other nations an unfair advantage.
Outdated antitrust laws should be updated prior to serious regulatory efforts.
Tech companies should regulate themselves to avoid government intervention.
