    The reason for updating is to get bugs and security issues fixed. Even if you don't care about your own computer, this also acts as a sort of vaccination, where herd immunity may help squash potential attacks on others, not only on your own machine.
    That said: Unless you've got ancient hardware, your performance shouldn't drop a lot from common software updates, so there's usually no good reason not to upgrade to the latest OS version unless you disconnect your computer entirely from the Internet.
