to upgrade or not to upgrade, this is the question ;-)

seriously, why should I upgrade? I will consider a next upgrade only when
there is new software to warrant it. Meaning with so many new USEFUL
features that it'll increase my productivity or will make new tasks a lot
more doable . This is not the case with the current upgrades. I couldn't
care less if the nemus are shaded or animated. The current CAD versions I
run cost between 10 to 100 times the value of my computer and operating
system. The amount of time rquired by each upgrade is always more than I
could afford. It's similar to leasing a new Porsche every six months and
driving it mainly in reduced speed areas. I wouldn't do this with a car, why
do this with software? There are no new simulation algorythms and no new
laws of physics applicable to schematic and pcb design. Current tools have
most of the features I want and there's nothing new and spectacular in any
of these upgrades. I'll live with what I have until the current OS computing
crisis ends in a few years. I'm not willing to subsidize M$ any longer.
