For many, the, 'if it ain't broke don't fix it', is an overwhelming
factor. Many upgrades can be very painful and the longer you leave it,
the worse it gets. Another example is the 'for the sake of it' upgrades.
E.g. many will tell you that the upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8 is
really a downgrade. Eventually you get to the stage where upgrading is
going to cost you more time that starting again from nothing; just keep
your data. Just my €0.02.
