[Walter Soyka] "Apple behaves capriciously"

Actually I think Apple behaves consciously, not capriciously although some not like their business model.

The inner works of Apple's process is only revealed through the bits and pieces we get, often by former employees and even then the real workings may not be entirely known.

I wouldn't be surprised if Apple want's to "reserve the right" to change things in very short time frames which would mean revealing roadmaps could be problematic. Of course there may well be development paths where that's not likely and in those moments you get things like announcements about multicam support or development paths being revealed at WWDC. Apple did reveal FCPX months before it was released but obviously not enough about it for many (most) people.

Also revealing a roadmap isn't always a great "selling point" unless one likes the roadmap revealed. I certainly can't speak for others but HP saying they won't support Thunderbolt is just one such example for me. By the same token, hearing Asus, Acer, Lenovo reveal a roadmap supporting Thunderbolt is something I find encouraging as might Thunderbolt peripheral developers as well.

Basically I feel revealed roadmaps have pluses and minuses for a variety of reasons. My only concern would be sudden changes in hardware which might shorten the life of some key piece of hardware I've invested in.
