A pretty sizable group has developed for people who don't like the new "layout."

Not a smart move on flickr's part (and of course "there are no pros anymore) ... the preferred way in the industry when changing anything is to add an "old layout" option, and then quietly take it away again once the media coverage has ended :->

This is a great, clear-eyed analysis from a source close to the Flickr founders on what the changes are about. Hint: Its the business model, stupid!

Yahoo!'s great gamble is an interesting business decision, but not much good for us (ex?) Pro users being shuffled aside.

I don't care for the new layout.  The old layout worked and it was clean.

I wish that Flickr would give users the option of "classic flickr" display format.  Then both types of customers could be happy. 

It is 2013, do we really have to have only one interface on the Internet Tubes?

I think the move makes business sense. Instead of earning from "pros", why not earn bigger money from advertising? Being free, it will also enlarge hopefully the number of users thus effectively making ads more effective which means more business. Flickr just adopted the current business trend in the internet nowadays.

I like the new layout.  I just wish there was an option to change the order of photos in the Photostream.
