yes.... very true but since the .com gained its popularity first it will be the one to stand out forever more... I would say .net and info have good portensial for catching up but will they ever is the question?
Generally speaking, it would be really good for a .net or .org to get say 10 - 15% value of its .com counterpart. As for .info or .biz, even for generic names, their values are really minimal, with only occasional exceptions.

More and more business owners are realizing a customer could care less about what was at the end of their domain. On top of that they want to be different than the rest.
I recently sold a domain to a company with offices in five countries. Their primary domain was blahinc.com. They decided blah.biz looks a whole lot better. In addition I offered to assist them in acquiring the .info from another reseller on dnf and they said they weren't interested.
I believe the future of .info and .biz is much closer than most realize. I personally have 6 .biz local directories in development which I will be advertising in local print, yellowpages, radio, etc. Sure I could spend thousands, tens of thousands, mabey even hundreds of thousands to acquire the .com's but I can think of better things to do with that money.
yes but because .com gained so much popularity and everyone knows of it... its a more memerible domain and beause search engines are not extreamly effective in finding the companys site you want, so it would be instintive to type the url with a .com ending in trying to find the site manually.
On one of my directories I have the .info and .biz extension. This is a business directory or as I like to call it a .bizness directory. I decided to go with the .biz over .info and use it as a redirect also to keep other from doing the same thing since I have the only two that are not already used for other cites/companies.
