Why?

I'm running a dual core, 64-bit machine (DELL Optiplex 745) that's about 
10 years old
and chugging along superbly.

I also deploy in my school 32-bit machines (HP) of the same age without 
any obvious problems.

All current versions of LiveCode work superbly on all of the machines.

The obsession with continual upgrading is . . . .

Richmond.
