Sorry, I forgot we live in an über-PC era, where everyone's irrational "upset" must be validated, no matter how much it may lack perspective.
And again, no one is being "forced" to do anything. I thought Avid's upgrade prices for PT10HD was a ripoff, but I'm not "forced" to upgrade, I can stay on PT8HD for as long as I like, which is exactly what I'm doing. And a UAD-1 user can continue to use their UAD-1 with the current version of the UAD software for as long as they like with their current setup. Easy breezy.
