I think there are most likely two candidates for a secondary arch
other than PPC. The first is sparc where from the server point of view
where its probably about as prolific as PPC in that regard. The second
would be arm but that is more from the NetBook/MID/Phone/STB
perspective where there are quite a few devices in the 500Mhz-1Ghz
range with 256-512Mb RAM. With the OLPC X0-1 we've proven that Fedora
can run relatively well on that sort of spec, they also tend to be
relatively cheap.
