The Freedom To Not Upgrade...
« on: June 27, 2016, 10:58:00 AM »
Very well put...

The real scary thing about this “upgrade syndrome” is that it is a never ending cycle. It literally has no end. There will always be a newer version. Eventually your old version won’t be compatible with the latest computers or OS. You’re doomed.

So that really only leaves you with two choices: stay on the crazy cycle of perennial upgrades OR do something that most people are afraid to do. Stay behind.

In theory now that Moore's Law is slowing, obsolescence should take a lot longer, and it is.  That's why Apple had to "time bomb" some 2008 and 2009 Macs that were perfectly capable of running Sierra and currently do run El Cap very well.  One way or another, we need to make these obsolete.  Buy, buy, buy!
