Should 'www' be retired?

Ok, maybe this may be petty, but why do so many sites require that 'www' before the names? I have wasted lot sof time trying to navigate to sites by just their domain name, only to find out that I need the 'www'. What do I mean? Both of these should work:

But then why would some develop a site that doesn't work like that. For example (with apologies to Brent Rector):

Thwate Intermediate Certificate Fail!

UPDATE: I spelled it wrong, but now that so many RSS readers have it, I won’t change the title ;) It’s spelled Thawte, not Thwate, sorry for the confusion.

I browsed to AgiliTrain (my training company) and noticed that the SSL Cert was failing. Not a good thing. But it wasn’t expired, it couldn’t find the Intermediate Certificates that the issuer requires (I am using Thwate certs). I am not sure why this happens. Unfortunately my old GoDaddy certs didn’t need Intermediate Certificates. My next certs won’t either because it has caused me a lot of wasted time and energy.  Much more than I saved going with the cheap Thwate certs.
