My stomach is still turning after having read the news. The modules are gone and, in my case, the only way to upgrade and keep what I have now is to go all the way up to Studio R12! I should have gotten R11.5 while I had the chance. I think Maxon just lost a lot of customers.
It's similar to what Adobe did a few years ago with CS. I had to pay a LOT of money overall as I had purchased individual items vs. "packages". Truth is, people will pay because alternatives are limited. BUT, they don't forget. Time has a way of changing, and loyalty vs profit does not benefit the company in the long run.
