I would argue that this is a zenith for this type technology
I think one reason we are bound to endless upgrading is that software is covered by copyright laws instead of patent laws. Copyright protection was intended for printed matter. It was never envisioned that written codes would be used as a type of tool as in programming. If software was only protected for 17 years instead of 75 just imagine the creativity that would be unleashed.

Actually it's longer than 75 years. According to new law it is 100 years + life of the copyrighter (or original composer/creator).
