"Managing a system upgrade is REALLY easy – you're just going from an older version of the system to a newer one. What could go wrong?" Plenty! The longer it's been between upgrades, the harder it is. When an upgrade moves from a character-based environment to a graphical one, and also goes from an obsolete database manager to a modern SQL-based one, you can rest assured the software vendor took the opportunity to re-design their entire system. When that happens, look out – lots of other things will also change.

"This is the fourth time I've postponed this system upgrade."
