I have long advocated keeping machines up to date. When machines become too old to update, I’ve bitten the bullet and dumped them, even if they were still fully functional.
With all the malware and ransomware, not to mention simple flaws that could cause a system to crash, it’s become necessary to keep machines up to date, regularly updating both operating system and applications software. When that software can no longer be updated, it’s time to toss the machine.
But should it be?
