I bought the upgrade from 2011 to 2012 and would most likely do so again
just because I like to keep current. But I don't notice any huge
notation improvements, nor is my work-flow enhanced in any major way.
If you've got the money, I would suggest making the upgrade, especially
since the upcoming interim update patch, according to that blog we got a
link to a couple of weeks ago makes it seem as if it will be almost like
getting for free what we used to pay for each year.
I'd say you should buy the upgrade.
