The most current version of the Mac OS is 10.7.4 - I have never found a problem 
in upgrading Mac's and it really doesn't take very much time as it's basically 
automatic. You are correct in your observation that that if you don't keep your 
operating software up-to-date then things can get sticky. But with that said 
being to fast to upgrade your Mac OS can result in the reverse problem in which 
the off-brand software does not recognize the newer OS - so its a balancing 
game - my solution is to keep one computer running on the latest - but one OS, 
and my main one using the latest.

Probably does not help much but it's what's worked for me.
