Why turbo instead of NOS

Why would you go turbo? I had a friend that builds muscle cars and he is doing everything to talk me out of going turbo. He suggested NOS to me.
Wont the turbo burn out your engine fast?
I have a 2000 Tib and I want to have some fun.
I only have 28K milage so I have a long way for warranty.
Do you know anyone who has used turbo for any given length of time. Seeing the Tib revs at such a high RPM during everyday crusing speeds. The turbo will be kicking in all the time. I'm also going on the specs for the Alpine Kit.
I think it kicks in at 2500 rpm. Man you do more than that just crusing down the highway. It's like 3500 rpm for Highway crusing speed. You would be pumping all that presure in your engine all the time. Talk about wear and tear on the engine.
I'm not planning on racing 'Well".
I want the car for an everyday driving car without beating the **** out of it. But I want to have the power for when I feel froggy<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

my one sentence answer:

Turbo's are more upgradable and can provide more power in the future, if you want to turn up the boost in the future you can.
