	 I doubt it.  The Power3 comes from the server organization and is
intended for their use.  IBM, however, does understand customer demand:
if there was "enough" market interest, I am sure that it would find a way
to sell it.  The Power3 processor price is nowhere near a PPC750 or G4 and
does not include AltiVec.
