Not upgrading

I’m Johnnie Moore, and I help people work better together

I don’t know about you (for all I know you’re an Apple or Linux person) but the more I read, the more I think I’ll not be upgrading to Office 2007 or to Windows Vista. I don’t like what I’m hearing and to be honest, I’m quite content with the software I’ve got. Do I want to risk all the gremlins to add to the proportion of features that I don’t understand and will never really use in my software?

Tony’s latest update on Office is a good example of why I’ll stay where I am, thanks.
