Tracy's old avatar used to be a lady in a -20s era long skirt, standing next to an Indian, as I recall. She's an old fashioned kinda gal.   :undecided:

I think Rampage's customer base, maturity and affordability played a part in the acquisition. They made a 'comparatively affordable' product that just worked, and made it well.
That being said, we had just upgraded from v11 to v13 after 5yrs, and are looking forward to using v13 for at least that long...native intel client means it will run on current macs...I don't have to worry about other workflows, at least for the next few years  (by that time XMF, maybe if it's still around?)
Have been told by Fuji that they are committed to service and support for Rampage, and that includes any maintenance/bug fixes that may arise.
I was shocked that this had happened, but in the greater picture...I'm not worried.

We never upgraded beyond v10 because I don't like spending lots of money, and I never had any issues that couldn't be fixed in some fashion with our current setup. Had we done so, there would be a level of regret having dropped $20k and not being able to proceed.

Sounds like maintenance mode to kill it and replace it with something else.
