    Like any new software there are ups and downs. people ask for new features and others are happy the way it is. Personaly I am still useing 2012 and am happy with it the way it is. It all boils down to what works for you.

    Debatable. Not too many new groundbreaking features in 2013. At my company we collectively chose not to upgrade because the benefits did not compensate for the lost time upgrading everyone. If you plan on doing assembly driven analysis quite frequently then it may be beneficial for sure and easier to do FEA. But day to day use. It is not leaps and bounds this year.

    i think you are unable to buy old versions of SW.
    if you are going buy SW from reseller they will give you updated SW. presently 2015 sp 3 is in market now in few days 2016 will be launch soon.
    and then enjoy the updated tech. with updated SW 2016.
