I agree that progressive enhancement is the way to go, but I also understand that in business it's often majority rules. Yes, this will alienate some potential users, however from a business standpoint you're going to allocate your resources towards where the demand is. If the company has a lot of resources, then I imagine they would allocate them towards developing on multiple platforms, but if they don't then they'll put their efforts towards the majority. I agree, in an ideal situation you cater for all - it just doesn't always work out that way and that's when it's up to us as the developers to pick the technologies we use to best cater for the majority.
