Software allows for upgrades. Pay a fee once a year or maybe every couple of years and wallah ... your state of the art up-to-date raring to go. You are new born. You are refreshed with the latest and greatest stuff your software could do. Allows you to get the most out of your investment. Could I apply for a software upgrade for my body and or mind?
Imagine the possibilities!
But what if your on the wrong base? Your parents were into LSD and hard rock ... or bubble gum and comic books. It might be like be on Windows versus MAC ... when what you want now is something cool like Linux or Solaris/Open Solaris or something simple like Unix. Solaris does sound cool. Hi, my mind operates the Open Solaris ... how about you?
Oh well, stuck with the same operating system ... and no software upgrades except the old fashion manual reset button. Get up tomorrow and actually do something different.
