Microsoft's Upgrade Path

I'm not sure if I should fault Microsoft or the people using their products, but there is a huge problem with the upgrade timelines in the wide world of MS. I know several people who just made the switch from MS Office 2003 to 2007 and within a few weeks the boys in Redmond are going to drop the next version (2010 - original naming scheme here, guys).

If people are one full version and three to seven years behind what you're doing, then there is a fundamental disconnect. I know most people would talk about upgrading software when they upgrade their computers. They would also say that it takes three to seven years for MS to get a program to run with stability. Good points all.

Where is the disconnect between you and your church? What can you do to close that gap?
