i think thats not true. technology is progressing fast. why should a manufacturer continue a board that is already outdated? so it is wise to start new series and versions based on the current level of standard and knowledge.
for example, people complain that biostar puts many versions of their motherboards out, but i think that is the most honest thing they can do. Other manufacturers are doing the same but they do it below the table without any notice. thats the difference.
Almost no motherboard is running perfectly right from the start. many bugs can be fixed through bios updates. Those that cannot require new versions.
