Dropbox and backup suggestions aside, I can't help but feel 7.0 was not
ready for primetime. My experience has been giant standalones to cater to
features I don't use, and lackluster performance. I know others will
disagree but I devoted the last four to five years to livecode and come out
disappointed with 'next-gen' livecode. Maybe that will change with 8.0 but
that's quite a bit of hedging my bets.

We'll see.
