I may spring for the big bux to get Ver. 6. Can anyone tell
me whether I'll be able/allowed to keep my Ver 5.1 on my
machine? I've got hundreds of .nb files that now work on 5.1
and I want to be sure I can retain their functionality. It's
pretty clear that some of these programs won't run under Ver
6. I would eventually update those .nb files to work with
Ver 6 but I don't want to be without their use in the meantime.
I remember being very inconvenienced at last update from 4
to 5 when I no longer had Ver 4 available. Thanks.
