Definitely not! I spent ages using my system with no upgrading at all
having installed from rex. I understand the need to upgrade for bugs/new
packages, but once I had a working system of X/lesstif/latex/gcc and a lot
of utils I couldn't see the point in upgrading. As a 'normal user' I
didn't find any of the bugs/limitations in the system I had installed
needed repairing. If it works - don't fix it....
