Subj:   Re: Upgrades 'R' Us
From:   Christopher Platt

On the converse side of the coin.... staying on a release of code too long for fear of upcoming bugs and outages can lead to the discovery of bugs and outages not yet previously found on the current release of your software. This can lead to serious pain when it you are forced to upgrade to cure the current problem on your current release. I can remember living on a release of Teradata code for 3 years (before they had a software roadmap) because it worked, there we no new features or creatures that we needed or wanted in newer releases so we sat on the same release........ What a pain it was to upgrade when we finally had to !!! Over the years Teradata code has tightened up alot....... with good and rigorous testing of new releases on test boxes we have had very few problems or outages in our upgrade path.
