PLEASE GIVE THE OPTION-POSSIBILITY TO RETURN TO THE PREVIOUS VERSION!!!

Hey, I know a week ago the developers gave an option to choose between the two versions... Now they have removed it... Please keep it up both options, why do you need to force everybody to use one thing instead of keeping both options available? It cost you nothing else as it already exists...

    I wonder if duolingo became a dictatorship

    I mean, regardless on the merits of the criticism itself, this argument is baffling. Put in those terms of course Duolingo is a "dictatorship"... they put out a product and it's up to you to decide whether you'll use it or not. They can regularly check the boards to have a gist of member's opinions but ultimately Duolingo is neither crowdsource nor open source.

    So yes, Duolingo is a dictatorship... just like Google, like Microsoft, like Apple...

    And it's unfortunate that they become as greed as all those companies you've mentioned above. (as they were not like that in the beginning...)

    Like Nuno said, it is up to you whether to use the program or not. They would be stupid to use both versions forever. The cost of maintaining both would strongly exceed the income they can generate by ads.

    Even if you hate me now: I like the changes, at least so far. Just give it a chance - you can't change it anyway :-)
