Abstract
This paper takes Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET (VS.NET) as examples to study software upgrading and the related issues. The public browser statistics information from three different sources was used in IE study. The author’s experiments were used in VS.NET study. The IE example suggested that the software version (IE7.0) with more new features on the user interface took longer time to be accepted by the market and it could have negative impact on the software’s market share. The VS.NET example suggested that some new features might cause usability issues to the existing users and some important existing issues should be addressed in the higher priority than introducing some of the new features. Further research is required to confirm these suggestions. Further research is also required to answer the initial questions effectively.
