I own FrameMaker 6, Acrobat 8, Photoshop 5, Illustrator 7, and various
more obscure apps of similar vintage. They all work fine for my
purposes and upgrading would be not just a waste of money but a waste
of time having to get used to UI changes.

Buying a newer version of something because I needed it to work with a
client's docs is the main reason I've upgraded, but I haven't
freelanced with my own software in a long time.

Unicode was added in FrameMaker 8, which remains the high-water mark
for that codeline.
