There is another point which has been mentioned. Even though an update
may not appear to bring any new functions it normally is that one or
more functions in an update provide a better outcome than in the
previous version. Also, even without changes in functionality,
software improvements will result in better performance and take
advantage of improvements in more recent hardware architecture.
Of course if you only want the hard core basics you can continue to
use software originally written for a 286.
