searched help and old postings, but could not find any recommendations.

I have Stata 7 thru 11 on my machine.  Besides what others have said:

* I have some programs I have written that are on SSC. e.g. gologit2 says it works with Stata 8.2. If I tweak the program, I don't want to zap it unnecessarily and keep it from working with older versions of Stata. So, I will fire up Stata 8 and make sure the program still works ok.

* A lot of older commands become outdated but continue to work under version control. By keeping older versions of Stata around I can check the help files for those commands if necessary.

Whether I will bother to re-install all these old versions when I get a new computer is another matter.
