"That's why," David Pogue wrote about iMovie '08, "with what I imagine is a certain degree of sheepishness, the company is offering a free download of the previous iMovie version to anyone who has iMovie '08."

"I can't remember any software company pulling a stunt like this before: throwing away a fully developed, mature, popular program and substituting a bare-bones, differently focused progam under the same name."

Anybody remembers Word 6? Microsoft threw away a perfectly fine working user interface and replaced it with, well, yuck. I wasn't there, but from what I understand, a lot of people downgraded back to Word 5.1.
