[Frank Gothmann] "Sure it does. When a company repeatedly drops features and flexibility from its soft- and hardware in favour of what they think might one day become a standard then such company is a liability for any business and I won't play along. I want to decide what workflow and what hardware works best for my needs, I don't want or need Apple bullying me into this."

Apple has not yet canceled the Mac Pro, and by the time they do, there will be more Thunderbolt devices on the market.

[Frank Gothmann] "That statement doesn't make sense."

It does in the context of people talking about Apple "abandoning pro users altogether". That implies Apple selling only machines that pro users couldn't plausibly use to get their work done, not just machines that are a bit slower than what they could be offering (but still faster than what anyone was using to do that work a year or two earlier).
