How can ROMP possibly be slower than 68000?[edit]

Lets see, they were both clocked in the same Mhz rating, have the same number of registers, have the same number of bits, but ROMP had single cycle instructions, whereas 68000 didn't. Sorry, but unless somebody can explain why, I'm going to delete it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.57.168.132 (talk) 04:51, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Very long History[edit]

Shouldn't the History section be broken up into several sub-sections? Such as it is right now, it makes the section kinda difficult to read. I think maybe breaking it into reasonable time frames (for instance: "1994 to 2006 - Apple") and giving those time frames titles, would make sense. Polemon (talk) 15:44, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Yes! Make it so, please! :) -- Henriok (talk) 09:34, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

The archive link didn't work - but it was 5 years old, so I just removed the old paragraph (5-year-old UNIX server market share data isn't very interesting) and put in a completely new paragraph about the Power ISA (as it's now called) at IBM in 2015, complete with a {{as of|2015}} to properly qualify it (and hopefully encourage people to update it as time goes on).
