Ah, it’s that special time of year. That time of year when we consider the ramifications of firing a harpoon gun blindly into the air and also the pain of asking the IT department about upgrading to the next version of SolidWorks.

Point that spear away from the whirring server room and settle in. If you’ve upgraded from 2008 or previous to 2009, you probably have reasons for why or why not to do it. So, what’s your experience? What do you love or hate about upgrading to SolidWorks 2009?

or better yet…

If someone was still running SolidWorks 2008, what reason would you give them for upgrading or not?
