...the relentless drive of power hungry software drives the hardware forward. And I'm happy to accept this as the cost of doing business.
Absolutely. I agree completely.Quote:
But when time limits are put on the hardware and software of less than 5 years DEMANDING that you move forward, that makes me angry.
Why is it demanding that you move forward? Your current software still allows you to create music just as it always did. If you want to expand your facilities you may need to change your tools. It has always been that way.
If you want to use more powerful software, is it not reasonable to expect you to buy more powerful hardware to support it?
The computer you bought previously still does what you bought it to do. It is surely unreasonable to expect it to do something now that it wasn't planned to cater for at the time you bought it?
I still don't really know where this mindset comes from that expects something purchased last year to work with something invented next year. Nothing else works that way.
I bought my plasma TV to watch the Freeview channels. It still does that very well. However, when Freesat was launched I didn't get grumpy because my TV couldn't access those channels. I didn't buy it to do that. If I want to watch FreeSat channels I'll need to buy a new TV, and I think that's fair enough.
You mean I won't be able to watch 3D movies on my HD telly! nowai!!!
