IOW, over the past decade, "upgrading" has often been equivalent to 
downgrading. My thinking is that most developers are replacing old equipment 
with new rather than adding new equipment as technology and software evolve. 
They can't test on equipment they don't have. So it's up to users of old 
equipment and edge configurations to spot and report problems, which is often 
too late for those users who are not testing alpha and beta releases.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
