Same here, I was set to buy a PS3 in its first year but the removal of backwards compatibility made me delay the buy.
Then came the rootkits, OtherOS removal and more and more screw-ups, so I'm not getting one anymore.
But now, I might as well upgrade my desktop PC with a new AMD processor (screw you Intel will your ever changing sockets) and motherboard.
Yes, I'll be missing out on some games but I barely have time to play the ones I already have.
My default login for my PC is a non-administrator account in WinXP SP2 and I have encountered very few programs that refuse to run (like RivaTuner) without escalating user-rights. And for these programs I have "Run as..." in Explorer or the "runas/user:Administrator" in the Command Prompt.
