Ah, yes.  So that's why it "costs so much" to buy spark plugs, or car batteries.

After all, you have to develop "different versions" of each kind, right?

You have missed one further point. If developers of software have to develop
different versions for 10 different operating systems on 10 different
processor
types then you will end up paying far more for your software and, also, it
will
not provide extra functionality as quickly as too much time will be spent
keeping up with all of the 100 different versions.
