Your information is way out of date. Meteor is doing just fine now thank you.
The main problem we had over the last few years was wasting our energy dealing with losers spreading anti-Meteor FUD.
It is also unfortunate that a personality cult had developed around your name and a number of people reacted with ongoing public expressions of hysterical mourning and gloom after you announced your departure.
Both those groups of people are gone and we have been enjoying peace and progress again thanks to all the loyal long-time contributors and the new leadership of Tiny.
Since we began using Meteor in 2015, it has remained the most productive framework we have ever used to build webapps.
Here in Australia, my business has been using the Meteor classic stack (Meteor, Blaze, DDP, Pub/Sub, Iron Router) together with MySQL. We have implemented several commercial web apps that are used for tracking delivery drivers in real-time all over the country with infrastructure costs 10x-100x lower than our competitors.
I appreciate your past contributions and welcome you back. I have one polite request:
Please use your influence and talents for iterative, incremental improvements that remain true to the original vision of Meteor. We don’t want to lose what we have and see Meteor transformed into a different product under the same name.
If you want to pursue your own vision, it is better than you create your own fork under a new name.
