I think perhaps they mean “could join x86 in the server room”

As much as I love PowerPC, and as great as it is that they’re doing this OpenPower thing, I don’t think that the first step should be to eliminate the competition. Perhaps they should put some effort in to taking back a large part of the market. Didn’t these guys read The Art of War?

The OpenPower Foundation, and how IBM and friends could oust x86 from the server room

I’d certainly take a look at a server if they sent me one; it looks like Debian still supports powerpc arch on wheezy. ;-)
