It does get slower with upgrades man. I have an iPhone 3GS and it is way slower after the upgrades than when I bought it. To the point I way forever for applications, even Apple's, to start, scrolling is jerky. Even the phone startup and shutdown are slower.

Sometimes I feel like the graphics driver is not optimized and the binaries have been compiled with the wrong processor flags and aren't being scheduled properly.

When the old firmware has security issues like the Apple SSL bug it is a bad idea not to update the firmware.

I do suspect they do not even bother compiling the binaries for the older architecture by switching a couple of compiler flags though. The performance difference is just too big.

The F-104 Starfighter was supposed to be a cheap Mach 2 fighter. It was precisely that. It was also designed in record time with nothing but drafting boards and sliderules. It was just accident prone. The F-35 has taken forever to develop, costs more than an F-22 per unit, is slower than the F-104 Starfighter from the 1950s. It uses less fuel and has more advanced weapons. That is about it.

You can downmod other people and ignore facts you want you little pseudoanonymous shit. It seems you prefer to keep to your idea of what happened instead of reading the link the other guy gave you which clearly shows the EGA version of The Secret of Monkey Island came before the VGA version but the reality is still the same. Here have a quote from Ron Gilbert himself:

2) I was playing the VGA version that was released after the original EGA version. The original original version used 16 colors and the inventory was text only.
