How do deprecated methods affect you? Just curious. Maybe I'm missing something.

In my opinion, they don't. If you use an IDE like Eclipse where deprecated methods are clearly marked by a strikethrough and marked with a compiler warning, I don't see the big deal. And the bonus is that old code still compiles with new versions (and there is something to be said for backwards compatibility, a la "This presentation is not compatible with Keynote" discussion from a few days ago)
