Assuming a /single/ (as opposed to an array or cluster of) strong and
expensive server is in question, a test machine would be both expensive to
buy and a pain to maintain in tandem (replicating the system state). Unless
there are new important features to gain, go by the proverbial statement:
"if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Updates and security are another matter.
