Nobody said anything was wrong with it, but if you look from the eyes
of the average blogger, that system was severely lacking and had
little true purpose, whereas the capability to upload media into posts
is something that is highly, highly requested. Now, perhaps the old
uploading way should be included also for those who want it, the point
is the new way is an upgrade to an upld feature, not a drop of that
feature. You can still upload files, but like requested, you now
attach those files to posts, etc.
