I am downloading Finale v25 as I type, because Finale 2014d keeps crashing after a necessary OS (operating system) upgrade to my computer.

I make it a rule to not upgrade operating systems, but it seems that when I needed to do so, I quickly learned why I generally avoid it.

Let this be a lesson to you all: beware upgrading operating systems, even out of necessity.  You may have to upgrade other software (not for free!).

That isn’t really a bad thing in the end, because it means I can review Finale v25.  As you know, I recently bought Dorico, so I can now compare the new features in Finale to Dorico.

Let the battle of the notation software commence!
