I know and as you know there was no valid technical reason why AFV should have been the excuse. The BoG would have had to be somewhat creative with the truth to do that.
We simply can not advance the network or sure up our infrastructure while allowing these clients to still be able to connect to VATSIM.
Trying to paint the picture that FSInn/SB3 have somehow been holding the network back is a false narrative. They havn't. That doesn't mean they won't in the future but suggesting they've disrupted critical developments up to now just isn't true.
Nobody likes having to change their routine, but for the good of 99% of the rest of our members, we must make this change
If you think that we use FSInn because we're "stuck in our ways" or "don't like change" then you are wrong. We use it because it's better
than the "more modern" alternatives. I know that's not the accepted mythology but if there were a genuinely better
alternative then we'd have changed already! And right now it doesn't affect "the 99%" one iota whether we change or not.
I would implore those who are still on FSINN or Squawkbox to start learning swift now if you are not planning to change from FS9. Regardless of how you feel about swift, that will be your only option to continue to use FS9 very soon.
FYI I have *never* used FS9 . I know some do but using that as the reason for all
FSInn/SB3 users is simply wrong. I will change when there is good reason to do so, preferably reasons based on facts rather than uninformed myths and false narratives.
