The thing that attracted me to AMD was the fact that it had only 1 socket platform, Socket A. The slot A platform had just been discontinued. It made things so easy when I built my first PC.

I see the move away from socket A, a good thing. I believe AMD is planning to do with the socket 939 what they did with the Socket A. One socket for all Proc. This will alleviate alot of confusion when purchasing a processor and allows for a clear upgrade path with minimal hassle.

Personally, I'm waiting for the second generation (I dont like to buy first generation products because of potential bugs) of Athlon 64 Motherboards with DDR2 and PCIexpress.(whenever that happens) It will still be awhile before the socket A totally disappears, and the socket 939 will be well established before it goes.
