Computers platforms like the amiga didnt die out because you couldnt find hardware to buy, its because nobody was making software for it anymore. There are enough PC supporters to allow some "cheasy" 3rd rate apps to make their developers profit so they stick around and some thrive. Some of those cheasy apps get better over time, some of the top apps get crappy.. but the developers are healthy enough to keep the platform going over the long haul.. which is something apple has to worry about when huge companies like adobe start jumping ship from their product line.
Any computer platform needs software to survive, I never mentioned anything to the contrary or even mentioned anything about hardware. Just that for all the PC software on store shelves, the majority of it is garbage. Whether the developers are making money or not isn't the point, but that the software just plain sucks.
