Yeah, so? At one point we had 754, 939 and AM2 at the same time. I got socket 939 with the hopes of upgrading to a cheap dual-core down the line. By the time I was going to upgrade, it was cheaper buying new MB/CPU/RAM than getting used s939 dual-core Athlon X2's and Opteron's. That was my first and last lesson in "future-proofing".

The one thing I don't like about Intel's strategy is they're segmenting mainstream from high-end (e.g. LGA-1156:LGA-1366; LGA-1155:LGA-2011). If you go with low-end or mainstream, there's no way you can upgrade to high-end unless you switch platforms.

Intel has had 3-4 sockets in the last two years and AMD has had maybe 2 but they are backwards compatable or forwards compatable or something.

Money, most things are about money. And this is no different, well there are other reasons but Money is a big one. Plus Intel is making new technology very fast, so they are making new sockets very fast.

All just my theory's. Thanks, Sir Overkill.
