Okay okay I finally pulled the trigger. Got my license code in my email already, installed and activated without any issue.
First blush - ACK IT'S AN OFFICE 2007 RIBBON! NOOOOO!
Aside from that nit-pick... things look pretty good. All my recipes & inventory imported just fine - Now, I just gotta get used to where things moved to.
For those curious, what finally made me take the plunge from 1.4 to 2.1?
Boil Off Rate. The percentage ratio in 1.4 was constantly screwing with my water numbers - Because I boil in a wide kettle, outdoors in the wind, my boil-off rate is already widely variable -- but trying to adapt that to a 5.0 gal recipe in a 15.0 gal kettle was over-complicating those compensations.
VERY happy to see that in the new one, it's just a flat x gal per hour, just like the actual kettle's boil off rate tends to be.
Thanks for the fast order delivery Birdman Brewing Co.! I appreciate it.

I like some of the new additions/features but am not sure whether I really want to re-learn all of the quirks and ins and outs. I'm perfectly happy on 1.x and already have my full inventory & brew history in there...... but.... new version!
