In the old days, people would not spend thousands of dollars on a film SLR equipment unless they were really into photography and willing to learn because those cameras were far from being affordable. So, spending money just to have a SLR camera hanging around your neck was not the norm. For most, P&S was the way to go. Today, some entry level DSLRs can cost even less than a high end P&S. So, people feel they may be better off buying a DSLR only to be disappointed after the first few shots. People need to understand that there are some real good P&S out there, which will fulfill 95% of their needs at a reasonable cost. DSLRs are not for everyone (even though just about everyone can afford them these days). There is a learning curve, which can be quite steep some times. There is also a higher cost associated to them if you wish to have more than the standard 3x zoom kit lens they come with. Not to mention size, camera case, etc. So, before jumping on the DSLR bandwagon, think about your photographic needs based on what you like to take pictures of. There is a good chance that you'll find a very good P&S that fits just right.
