What camera should I buy/upgrade to/and so on?

I think some variant of this message title is the most frequent one I see in these forums.  I found Thom Hogan's advice on this topic to be the most useful I've seen:

"Virtually all of my responses to people asking "which" all boil back to that: understand what you're trying to do, find the products that let you do that, then choose either the least expensive one or the one you like the best. That's it. And yes, there will be multiple products that let you do what you want/need. Comparing low level numbers on them to make the choice is not the right thing to do. Which is cheaper? Which do you like best? (After handling it in a store, preferably.)"

I would add only that if you try it in a store, please buy it in the store.
