You would hope that an upgrade from a series 5 to 7 would be substantial. 
The upgrades (at least here in Australia)cost a fortune for lightweight 
users like me. Photoshop is such a fantastic piece of software however that 
even the original software offers more features than I'm ever likely to use. 
The problem is that the world changes, systems update and others use more 
advanced versions, eventually the minor problems almost force you to 
upgrade. Sometimes you cannot open files, or your software won't work on the 
new system. This is certainly true for Gatesware. I'm holding off at 5.5, 
but suddenly some of the formats being sent in for FOM won't open with drag 
and drop. NOt a disaster, but a pain. 

Hold out for as long as you can -- upgrade when you need to, or are forced 
to. GET your value from 5.5 ;-) 

This from someone still trying to use a Newton.
