There are so many different ways to talk about "architecture" that
both of your statements have little value.  

We can point to PC gaffes like segmented memory architecture, the ISA
bus, etc.  

We can also point to Apple screwups like shipping machines with no L2
cache, or with un-accelerated video graphics that suck pretty hard.
And the MacOS VM system (pre-OSX)... and that by holding down the
mouse button on earlier versions of MacOS you could stop all activity,
including VM paging and screen updates.
