Hell, it took damn near 2 years to go from 500 to 867MHZ
well That could easily be shaken off as a bug, on Motos part, I don't know how moto held up back in the beige ages, but I don't recall any year+ setbacks of products.
Perhaps after that fiasco, Jobs' sad to moto "get your act together, or I'm out"
and they said(for some reason unknown to man)"yes mr.jobs sir" and then they hauled ass to produce faster better harder stronger processors, triple checking them to make sure they wouldn't have another scaling problem.
also the g5 would be a totally different processor, which means different fab processes and all that, which means its a different scenario than that of the 500 mhz g4s
or at least partially different.
at any rate I'm optimistic about the g5, though a REALLY fast g4 would be welcome as well.
however an apollo g4 sold as a g5 would be unacceptable.
