...Nice  to hear that I am not lonesome of this boat. I must admit that  I
sometimes  cope with some old bugs (I have become accustomed and  familiar
with  them),  as  well as missing features. Yet,  this  heavily-customised
machine  would  require too much work to upgrade and then restore  to  its
previous  state.  The  gain does not entail benefits to make  the  upgrade
compelling  enough. My machine at home is more open to experimentation, so
I needn't lag behind in terms of state-of-the-art Linux.

Best wishes,
