true of life. It’s even truer when it comes to software. Before you can say – “what a great piece of software!” the version changes. It takes just a click to uninstall the older software version and download the spanking newer variant. The memory of the older software gets left behind as a just a registry trace somewhere. It also has a word of its own – Abandonware. Though meant for old and discarded games, it also covers older version software. When it comes to technology, the speed of change is so rapid that we don’t really miss the older versions. Perhaps, with applications like operating systems and Office suites, we do fall into habits that sometimes are difficult to give up.
