PPC was dead long before. If it had been a success, MS would have
stayed there, they're not dumb. The fact is, when Apple and IBM
couldn't get their crap together with CHRP, PPC outside of Macs and a
few other machines (3DO M2 anyone?) was dead. If Apple had held up
their original agreement to do MacOS on CHRP, PPC wouldn't look as bad
as it does and neither would Apple (speculation of course). PPC looked
good 2.5 years ago, then Apple backed out and it went down the toilet.
