    Thanks for the reply. I thought you had to go up with each step... and EQ 7 with the unlimited download is the only way for me to go here.....

    Also, most of the higher priced items are not allowed with the coupons at Jo-anns, and possibly Hobby Lobby (even if they carry it).

    Thanks everyone for the input. I ordered EQ7 yesterday from Amazon for $179 and it has shipped already. Excited to get it and see all that it has to offer.

    EQ7 has a lot more features than EQ6... it may pay you in the long run to get EQ7... you may not ever need more than it has to offer. The ability to transfer it from computer to computer is a wonderful improvement over EQ6's limited installations.
    When is EQ8 coming out? Has anyone heard? I think I'd rather buy the whole version as opposed to paying $90 for the upgrade to EQ7 and then another $90 for the upgrade to EQ8!

    Does anyone use it on a Mac? I have it but I never really got the hang of it. I'm wondering if that's because I have only used macs for so long. ?

    I stumbled across a thread somewhere in the EQ forums where an EQ rep stated that EQ8 wasn't even in the works.

    Here is info about EQ7's features:

    The other difference is that you can activate 6 on a computer once and that's enough. Mine resides on a old XP box that is OFFLINE for security. I cannot validate EQ every time I use it as the ethernet cable is not even connected to the computer. I can connect for flash upgrades. All of my crafting software is on that computer. (backed up, too)

    I do have on a laptop with a connection. If 7 needs to validate every time I use it, it can. Or I suppose I can allow it.
    I'm probably going to dual boot with Linux mint and keep Windows 7 offline.

    This might only apply to those users of legacy software - especially embroidery software which is expensive to upgrade and want their crafts on the same computer.

    The manual for EQ6 works for 7. I downloaded 7 and there was a disclaimer that most of the 6 manual would work. I'd bought the hard copy of 6. Any changes are posted on the EQ website.
