Is it possible/desireable to move from the BS2 solution to the BS3 [SP2013] ?

I just inherited a vendor-supplied site based on this site's Bootstrap 2 version. I am concerned about long-term maintenance and updates, and wonder if it is either possible or desireable to migrate that solution to this sites BS 3 solution.

You definitely can migrate although you might want to consider waiting until Bootstrap 4 is released.

There are some big changes though you will want to be aware of. First the grid is using a new naming structure for columns. Next, review the plugins or Bootstrap JS components you are using. That might affect your migration as well.

Also, during this upgrade, consider moving to Grunt/NodeJS so you can work in Sass as well as consider using grunt to combine and minimize your JavaScript.
