Are you certain that's the case?

PowerPC is usually the term used to describes a RISC CPU architecture
produced by a joint venture of Apple, IBM, and Motorola.  Common
operating systems known to run on it are:

 a) MacOS-X
 b) AIX
 c) Linux
 d) Most flavours of BSD (NetBSD, FreeBSD. OpenBSD)
 e) Windows NT 3.51 + 4.0
 f) BeOS

There are also a number of Real Time OSes that run on it, such as QNX,
VxWorks eCOS, and OS-9.

I have only ever previously heard "Power PC" used to indicate a
hardware architecture, NOT an operating system.

I'd think it highly likely that you're actually running one of the
operating systems I listed, and correctly identifying the operating
system seems entirely likely to be significant in diagnosing what
inefficiency you are encountering.
