Well I have decided that I am not going to renew our maintenance for the first time after 4 years of using SW. I just find I never need the VAR and really most of the new features have no impact to my bottom line. The only question I have is I will be purchasing a new computer sometime in January and will be installing SW onto it. Will we have access to the SP releases up to the date we stop doing maintenance. I have also downloaded and saved the latest SP's as a backup.
