I am quite happy with Wordfast Classic. As clumsy as I am, I am happy to be able to cope with a Cat, which is affordable and easy to use.

However, the main disadvantage about Wordfast Classic is, it works only in Word. If you have a PPT or Excel file, you have to use other tools to make it translatable with Wordfast Classic. Worfast Pro, on the contrary, is compatible with PPT or Excel.

Did you check this very comprehensive thread? Versions per se are not addressed but there is a lot of information http://www.proz.com/forum/wordfast_support/174697-wordfast_classic_vs_wordfast_pro.html

By the way, the current version of WFP is 2.4.0.1 (Windows), if you do use WFP you may find it better than the version you have (a number of minor issues were fixed).
