It's a good idea but fails in the real world.

There will always be someone's machine that will fall apart when this is used.

Let me point out a sad instance that is now all too common. It's that damn pirate XP OS install many repair shops install to fix machines. That cracked OS has shown up far too many times on both coasts and at my friends shops in BC, Canada so I can write that it's far more common than anyone will admit. But when we find that, its often the reason for the other ills with the machine and version tracker will cause it to toss up its cookies.

I'm unsure what other scenarios will give version tracker a bad name but there are far too many.
