On the main Wi-Fi Networking News site today, I explain why you shouldn’t buy Draft N gear: The Draft N devices lack a promise of forward compatibility (they’re likely to be upgradable, but there’s no guarantee from manufacturers), cost too much, and will require frequent firmware upgrades. Why buy now? See my editorial for more on the issue.

As a home user with a wap and two laptops and a server how is 2 or 3 hundred $$$$ expensive for over double the throughput (minimum)?
So it's not forward compatible, I upgrade every two years (at least) anyway and will just upgrade to the 802.11n when/if they become available.
rant away and stick with 802.11g.... The rest of us will have our cake now thank you....
