Re: If everything is working fine, why do PTF's?



fixed

From past experiences someone happened upon a bug that was fixed by a PTF
that hadn't been applied and was down for 2 days trying to correct the
issue. Since someone else had already gone through that pain if PTFs had
been applied the company would have been spared the 2 day down time.


Thanks,

This is a question I got from a client yesterday. I seem to recall
somebody
posting a link here some years ago to justify staying reasonably current.

He wants more than just the standard arguments about IBM insisting that
one
be at a certain level, et cetera, et cetera. It went right over his head
when I asked him if he changes the oil in his car on a regular basis. He
lives in the city and doesn't own a car.

Please chime in.
