Motorola and IBM have gone their separate ways on the PowerPC architecture, announcing that control of the Somerset design centre in Texas is to be transferred to Motorola. The two companies claim they will "continue to cooperate closely on the PowerPC architecture", but it is clear from the Somerset deal that they will be going in different directions. About 100 IBM staff who were involved in what was a joint venture are being offered jobs by Motorola, indicating that the projects they worked on will not be continued at IBM.
