This is what was done.  The old csh is deprecated, but still available.

This is what happens when software is upgraded.  It's what they call the 
"price of progress".  Most people don't seem to mind it until it impacts 
them personally, and then they tend to overreact.

Opinions were voiced.  A decision was made, based on those opinions.  

Anytime there's more than one opinion, there are going to be "losers" when
the decision is made.  The key to surviving is to accept the decision and 
move on, not make it out to be some grand injustice and then use it to 
somehow enhance the validity of your argument.

What issues?  You haven't raised anything concrete that hasn't already 
been addressed in this thread.

I'm attempting to explain to you how to survive in this situation.  The 
lesson is free, but like most advice, if you abuse the giver, they're 
prone to walk away and leave you be.

rivals and unfortunately opponents also.  But not because people want
to be opponents, rather because the tasks and relationships force
people to take different points of view.  [Dr. Fritz Todt]
