The original 272 G4 Xserves implemented in 2003 continue to be in use on-board 
the subs (from what I understand). In addition, the TI04 project (this past 
summer) invoked the use of G5 Xserves running our 64-bit Linux OS, Y-HPC. If 
PowerPC continues to be used in the sonar imaging environment, Linux will 
continue to be the preferred OS due to its flexibility and ease of code 
migration to/from non-PowerPC systems that remain a part of the on-board 
imaging systems.
