Default How often do you update?

I was just curious how often everyone updates. I'm going back to PT 11.3 because it seems to run better on my setup. Less CPU problems. Less video engine problems. And I'm curious. Do you guys usually update every time you can? Or do you update as much as is compatible with your computer? Or do you prefer to stay on one version of PT as long as possible?

If there WAS a stable version of PT I would happily NOT update!

Win 10 (new build) and 12.4 HD. If I didn't read so many nightmare stories, I'd think about a newer PT version, but I have work to do.

Still on Win7 but now running PT12.6 with no problems. I have kept a copy of all my installers since PT11, just in case, but have never had to use them.

I also keep every version(I keep a hard drive with nothing but downloaded programs and updates on it). As for installing, I tend to wait week and watch for reports here, then usually will try the update. But, I ALWAYS have a backup plan Most of my work is done on 11.3, but I do have a system drive with 12.4, and another that gets the newest build for trial

I ran 10.3.6/7 for a long time, really stable

I completely skipped 11. I came to 12 about a year ago.....
