Nonsense. You make it sound as if this applies to all software but seriously: it doesn't. I've been using Reason 6 for well over 4 years or such without any updates what so ever (because of newer released versions) and guess what? It just continued working. Just because it's software does not automatically imply the need for constant updates. ... meanwhile users of Microsoft Windows had no such issues what so ever. Ergo... it depends on the software environment.
