Subject: Intel chips?

Hi -

I am curious about why the non-68k posts I have seen have been about EPICS
on PPC systems, not Intel. It seems to me that Intel might be attractive in
that they have reasonable performance these days, and if one has some low
performance jobs to do one could do them cheaply with, say, PC/104 based
systems.

Is there some fundamental (endian-ness?) reason why EPICS on an Intel based
IOC would not work well? Thanks! -

Brian
