I usually try to maintain to the latest version of software and OS. The exception was made this time with Windows 7 to 8 and Office 2010 to 2013 upgrade as I realized that my current software are more than sufficing my need. So, this question arose. Do we really always update our OS and application softwares to the latest version as we really driven by the utility of the the latest features, or is it more driven by the fad of the sense of having the latest software? Also is it also the same thought process that drives to purchase the latest hardware, tablets or smartphones. (Kindly remember I am asking it in a situation, where still the older software or platforms are being technically supported).
