Well, I agree. My own company provides a "1 year warranty from date of delivery," but in virtually all cases, even if someone has a product that's 10 years old, we just service it, anyway. We may charge for the software update (like $150 for a machine that might cost $10K) but that's about it. We do expect our stuff to last a very long time and there's no good reason it should fail. Brings back repeat customers, a lot.
