Not for me, but I am sure plenty feel happy in the react world, but I prefer ng2 over react, so if push came to shove, I would give up meteor (since i don’t care about the bulk of it anyway), the goofy package manager and such, I am sure it is awesome if you have used meteor for a long time, but I prefer to find a package and type npm install than hope its on some site and maybe been updated.
If I understand, 1.3 is what gets rid of a lot of that old baggage, which I assume is why things are a little chaotic over here. There are folks like me, who are adopting ng2 and excited to see something like meteor adopt that, plus TypeScript and npm. I already use Mongo so from our side, it is a great win. But I imagine if you have been doing meteor for years, things feel a little upside down!
Then again, ng1 to ng2 is pretty upside down as well!
I just hope the relationship with Ionic stays strong through it, at that point this is everything I need, reactive programming, ng2, ionic, mongo, put built-in offline access and I am in heaven!
