MapObjects

I just got a letter today in regards to our MapObjects development. Basically the letter gives MapObjects users a free complimentary EDN subscription. I’m sure this is to get more of us to develop with ArcGIS Engine and better exposure to some of the new tools for ArcGIS development. I’ll probably take advantage of this, but we’ll continue developing for MapObjects for as long as we continue to get work that is better suited for it than ArcGIS Engine.

I’m curious though, how much longer before ESRI pulls the plug on MapObjects?
