I have to say I feel a great deal of vindication. After having so many tell me that 4E made the majority happy and we "grognards" (I loved that insulting name. It was great.) were a bunch of stick in the mud whiners. feels good to see WotC acknowledging the loss of our dollars into their pockets because enough of us didn't like 4E for them to take notice.
We'll see if they can win us back with 5E. They have their work cut out for them because Pathfinder is a fairly satisfying game. But it is possible to win us back because Pathfinder isn't perfect and with the new releases, there's some chinks in Pathfinder's armor Paizo isn't correcting with any urgency. For a person that usually plays to a high level, I for one would be interested in a D&D that captures what I like from the previous editions of the game including a versatile and powerful magic system while making the game playable at high level without goofy archers and barbarians that massacre 90% of encounters while other classes stand their looking slow and dumb.
