Upgrading from Ver 7 Worthwhile?

 Upgrading from Ver 7 Worthwhile?
I just got my applications working with Paradox Version 7 (after downloading
a truckload of software patches from Corel), and am wondering if upgrading
to the newest version of Paradox is worthwhile?

Is it backwards compatible?   What do I get for the money?  I've used 4.5
for years, and had that system completely bullet-proof.  I'd hate to muck up
my stuff again.

Any advice is appreciated...

I know what you mean; we've got a lot of business applications
still running in 5.0, and running quite well that way.

Paradox 9 is far from "bulletproof," but IMHO a definite step forward,
and worth checking out.  As a developer, at least get a copy for yourself
for the new tools -- the Documentation Expert alone is a real time saver --
and check what it would take to port your apps.  (Are you saying you're
now running 4.5 DOS or 4.5 WIN?  If you're running 4.5 WIN, most things
should convert with little or no rewrites.)

Havent seen PDOX9 yet, but I was disappointed in 8.  Seemed very buggy in
comparison to 7.  Also, was a lot slower.
