Upgrading Software

When should you upgrade your software? Software is expensive to be continually purchasing newer versions, especially when you may not really need it. Much like with hardware upgrades, it is important to think about whether the computer or software does what you want and need it to do. If it does, then don't waste your money. You should wait until the need or a real desire for it is there.

This is especially true for productivity software like Word, Excel, and others. Enhancements are often targeted toward corporate or power users, offering no real value to the average consumer. Of course, an upgrade is warranted if there are file compatibility issues between your home and work machines, but even many of those can be resolved without costly software upgrades.
