Future of WiMax

A while back I remember reading a comment here that "WiMax is not a
future proof technology" and that several manufacturers have dropped it
or something to that effect. I think it was in the starting a WiMax ISP
thread. This has stuck in my head, and I was curious if there was any
truth to this.

WiMax sounds promising, but I certainly don't hear a lot about it other
than Sprint/Clear. Is it just that everyone that's doing wireless is
sticking with relatively inexpensive 802.11 a/b/g/n products, or is
WiMax really a dead end?
