+ There are two modes the powerpc CPUs can operate in: <em>big-endian</em> and <em>little-endian</em>.<br />
+ The <em>ppc</em> and <em>ppc64</em> are <strong>big-endian</strong> stages and can be used with any <strong>PowerPC</strong> CPU, including some old Apple&trade; hardware.< br />
+ The <em>ppc64le</em> are <strong>little-endian</strong> stages and are created for running on <strong>POWER8</strong> and newer CPUs.< br />
+ The <em>power9le</em> are <strong>little-endian</strong> stages, optimized exclusively for <strong>POWER9</strong> CPUs.
