Do you think that apple will ever again use the much more powerful IBM Power Processors in their high end mac pro workstations since the xserve is now dead and the mac pro is the best replacement from them for server use.

With adobe now having dropped support for non intel based macs from the CS 5 and CS 5.5 i dont think they would every switch back to power PC processors as there is much less software available to run on them. The G5 from several years ago was about as close to a workstation with a Power PC processor as you will get.
