Gen 7.2.2

    We just bought a 3630 which has a world called Genera-7-2-2.load, which
    apparently includes the ECO#2 patches in the world.

    Aside from gaining FEP blocks (33500 for 7.2 and 12000 for the added
    incremental of ECO#2), is it worth transfering this world to our 3600 and
    re-building worlds? Is 7.2.2 better?


This depends on your situation.  As you suspected, 7.2.2 is just 7.2 with ECO
#2 patches already loaded.  If you're a VAR or 3rd party software supplier, or
have a large in-house user base, and you've already built worlds with ECO #2
patches loaded, there's no real advantage to switching.  But if you plan to
build a new family of incremental worlds, I'd suggest using 7.2.2 as the base

There is no reason you couldn't copy your older worlds onto your new 3630, if
that makes more sense in your application.  Compatibility with newer hardware
is not an issue.
