* Several third-party products also provide DOS and Windows compatibility for [[Power Macintosh]]. Through SoftWindows software (available from [[Insignia Solutions]]), Power Macintosh computers can run standard-mode MS-DOS 6.2 and Windows 3.1 software-based applications at speeds comparable to those of entry-level PCs based on the 80386 and 80486 processors.

* Apple has implemented an affordable, comprehensive upgrade path to PowerPC for existing Macintosh and PowerBook computers -- so you can still buy and support Macintosh computers based on the Motorola 68000 family of microprocessors without missing out on the advantages of PowerPC technology.

===Power Macintosh computers can run hundreds of applications at an exceptionally fast rate===
 +
* Software developers worldwide are redesigning applications -- and creating new ones -- to take advantage of the performance capabilities of the PowerPC processor, resulting in the largest library of mainstream applications designed specifically for a [[RISC]] platform. These applications can run up to six times faster than the applications you use on today's 680x0-based Macintosh computers.
 +
* Computational-intensive RISC-based applications for tasks such as three-dimensional modeling and scientific visualization offer much higher performance than their CISC-based counterparts.
 +
* The high performance of the PowerPC processor also enables developers to add new features to these applications. In this way, PowerPC technology helps advance the boundaries of software capabilities and opens the doors to innovation.
