Hi,

I cannot tell how often I have said this already. I stay with the even branches until the next even branch comes out. Currently, the machine here runs 8.3 and will stick to 8 until 10.0 or 10.1 will arrive at the scene.

But for technical reasons, I have left one machine on 7 after the upgrade from 6 to 8 failed. It is a very old machine and some hardware support got dropped.

Erich
