With the Kobo, unless I HAVE to update because of a huge bug or because I'm forced to do a factory reset, I don't do it. The version I have is working fine, I can read my books and make shelves to organize them, I have fonts that work. I have no issue with users who upgrade every time a new firmware version is released, it's just not what I do. If/when I have a big problem, I'll do it. Until then, as my husband has pointed out, if it's working why bother?
I understand your reluctance to update, I do. But I find that in the end, it's worth it.

As to Calibre--I have around 1600 books in my library currently, and it manages them like a boss. Seriously, the shelf thing used to drive me MAD until I started using Calibre's management system; now it's simple and wonderful and I love it. It also lets me easily manage my series, of which I tend to have a lot.

I update Calibre every time myself--I don't mind the frequency. I'd rather have something that gets attention and tweaks to consistantly improve it, than a piece of software with no support that frustrates me to no end.
