i would agree... i plan to have my next system overhaul in 08 after the quad core's come out and i think by then AMD will have moved to DDR3 (heard it somewhere... not sure if it's true) and all of this hardcore socket switching will settle down a little bit. It almost seems like AMD is pulling an Intel by introducing a socket and cutting it out or ignoring it so fast (754). Infact i even told my friend that it was going to die soon and is almost dead (this was about 7 months ago) and he still grabbed a 754, agp, etc etc and spent about 1k US! It seems like it was only a little bit ago it came out.
Anyways, i think a lot of ppl are going to stick with AMD anyways because of their reputation, and the fact that it will soon be doing some intense evolving and such... but when doesnt technology do that to you..?
btw - i bought that mag at the airport when i was waiting for my plane
