Digg v4 finally launched last week, and it’s taking a lot of fire, for both design decisions and technical issues. There are a lot of angry users asking them to go back to the old version. This is simply not going to happen. Love it or hate it, v4 is here to stay.
Digg v4 is not a redesign, not a reskin, it is a 100% rewrite. It’s completely new design, code, architecture, and infrastructure. It has almost no relationship to the v3 system whatsoever.
Even if they still have the systems and the desire to roll back, they don’t have the talent to maintain Digg v3. Nearly everyone who built and worked on the legacy Digg codebase has left the company.
