I understand that I can gain some good tools, but do I lose anything? I notice that Metzger is missing in BW8 and I enjoy having him there in BW7 will he come with me?

Look HERE (http://www.bibleworks.com/content/new.html) (bottom of page) where it states (and note what I have bolded):
Many of the databases contained in BibleWorks are licensed from the copyright holders of those databases. On rare occasions we are unable to reach a mutually-satisfactory agreement with the licensor and items must be removed from BibleWorks or turned into extra-cost modules. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.
The following list of databases contains items included in the base package of BibleWorks 7 which are no longer available from BibleWorks and which will not be included in the BibleWorks 8 package.

The following list of databases contains items included in the BibleWorks 7 base package which are no longer available in the BibleWorks 8 base package, but which may be purchased separately.

The only thing you are losing is the kicks in the behind that you will give yourself for not upgrading sooner.
