Canon did change the mount at some point, but it was 21 years ago, and they aren't planning on changing it again AFAIK. For example, the lenses that worked on the AE-1 won't work on the 40D today. Didn't Nikon try a new mount at some point, but it was unsuccessful? I forgot now...

I feel like you can't go wrong with either company. It's a lot of personal preference. I will never be the guy that says "hey why don't you shoot a real camera and buy a Nikon" (yes, someone said that to me once while I was out shooting with my 40D.
