"Software is simply bloated up until you're forced to buy a new one."
I do this weird trick, I don't upgrade the software. If I was happy with the software on my phone in 2011, why wouldn't I still be happy with it in 2014 ?
it helps that I don't go online much or install a lot of third party software, I understand sometimes security fixes are necessary. (otoh, I was saved from the heartbleed bug on my laptop because it was such an old copy of debian)
