Hardware updates are always going to be justified. They make a product better. Software is a different story, it puts doubt in peoples minds. Just look at the Windows XP patches and what the public feels about there being so many.
Did the GeForce 4 prove to be better than the GeForce 3? Answer is yes. Was it perfect? Answer is no, is any hardware perfect? Did I say hardware is always perfect, no.
Your fishing for something here Stealth, but I think your gonna find yourself coming up short. In no way had I ever said that hardware is perfect. I did however say that hardware updates are always going to be justified, where as software updates... are always brought into question. That is what I said. You want verbatim... see the quote above.
