QUESTION: I keep getting offers to upgrade the existing software on my computer. When and why should I upgrade my software?
ANSWER: You don’t need to upgrade your software unless or until you want to. Manufacturers regularly make improvements on their existing software and offer upgrades to their customers. Some offer these upgrades for free. Others may offer it to you at a greatly reduced price. Even if it is free, don’t feel obligated to upgrade your software.
When the time comes you will know whether you’re interested in the improvements that are being touted. It’s fine to stick with what you’re used to and comfortable with until you feel a desire for something more.
