Do HTPC's become obsolete?

Well, I guess they must. But what is the expected life of one? Longer than a regular computer? For example, if you bought a Revo, do you think it would be unable to play television at some point because the technology passed it?

If a computer is running software that works, does it really matter?

If I bought a computer 14 years ago to run Microsoft Office 97 and it still runs the 97 versions of Word, Excel then does it matter if its "obsolete"

If you buy a computer today, it will still display pictures, videos and play music files created today for many many years to come.
It can't play streaming video... but I never could have imagined streaming video when I bought it.
Did you buy it to stream video?
