The internet software being out-of-date, not supporting current
features, not having bug fixes, not fixing security holes.  And, if you
want to add new software, it not being available for an older release.

But if you're isolated, e.g. a computer that's nothing more than a word
processor and printer, then it doesn't need updating if it already does
what you want it to do, reliably.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
