One of those things about other kind of "do" and "undo"!

1) With the current frontEnd, one can ""undo" only once. But perhaps next
2) Some users can "do" nothing to upgrade. But perhaps next marketing

Yes, I am still stuck in version 5.0 because y moved from USA to Europe
after having moved from Europe to USA before. Originally, my license comes
from Europe, since the version 2.xx times, back in 1996, I think remember. 

I upgraded in Spain from versions 2.x.x to version 3.0, and then to version
4.0; directly over the USA Wolfram web site (all right). Then, I upgraded in
Houston (Texas) to version 4.1 and 4.2; directly over the USA web site (all
right again). 

No problem at all about licenses numbers and customer addresses. But, back
in Spain again,
a) I cannot upgrade because the Wolfram USA web site recognizes my license
number as valid, but refuses my European Address. 
b) The Wolfram European Web site says that my license number is not valid.
(Not a clue why). 
c) The Spanish distributors do not care (I have emails proving this
d) Wolfram global customer care(?), itself, does not care either. (I have
emails proving this assertion.)

So, policies are above (not about) customers. Is it not Kafkian?

May I second the criticism of the functionality of Undo.  It is one of 
the most aggravating limitations of the current FrontEnd implementation.

Because of this... I crashed it many times
