Mate, I've said this numerous times - you're comparing apples to oranges; you're comparing one side of the industry with a constant ISA/architecture to Apple that has moved from PowerPC to Intel. If Apple were using Intel all this time but artificially blocked off all machines from 5 years ago from using Mac OS X then your point would stand but that simply isn't the situation as it stands today.

There are less and less PowerPC computers out there and to be completely honest if you've gotten 5-6 years out of a computer I think you're doing pretty damn good in my books. I would be saying this even if I owned a PC, I've gone from an eMac to an iMac/iBook to a MacBook to a MacBook Pro/iMac - I find it funny that people scream and wail with pain when it comes to computer upgrades but don't batter and eye lid when it comes to upgrading their car, television or some other piece of equipment of equal or greater value within the same 5-6 year time frame.
