Windows 7: Are any updates issued to encourage us to buy new programs?

Quicken, as I understand, is a finance program? Having recently finished classes in all of Excel, PP, and others, I did a years worth of finances on a spreadsheet, and noticed a most alarming problem. I spent more time installing bells and whistles, with complex formulae to process data in various ways then I did keeping the basics straight. The end result was that at the end of the year my simplest of data appeared hidden behind a vast forest of nebulous datasets, all wonderously presented almost as if they had been designed to obscure the truth. Perhaps, short of using a database one would gain many benefits from a personal finance program.
Will hope that I don't go over the line in drifting off thread, though I see you are a senior member so I shall suppose that you are following the proper guidelines.
I looked at your site, roflbot, it looked really cool. I have always used PowerPoint to do such things, though it has limitations.
Anyway, thanks for the inputs.

I notice, looking through this post that Microsoft's spell checker leaves a little to be desired!

Yes, Quicken is a finance program and I have several more modern versions of it. Much more than I really need. I just keep track of my checkbook - nothing else. Suits my needs perfectly.

I have very few needs.

I tend to agree with a lot of the others here. You probably would hear hollering from all over the world if Microsoft stopped doing updates etc for a program just to get ya to buy the newer version. i mean yea its ones own choice as to whether or not to spend the dough to upgrade; so if someone chooses not to do it; then so be it.

Yesterday, a Windows updates installed. When i re-started my computer, my desk top was different - a different background and only about five files on it (instead of 25 + all my shortcuts).
