Default What happened to the Jet design? (Cathar, where are you? ;-)

I thought i should ask, and i might as well do it here. Cathar offhanded the Storm/G7 thingy to Swiftech who since then pretty much did... Nothing to it? It's now again replaced with microchannel designs, or micro "pin array designs" and every company with any "pride" has plate with a bunch of holes in different patterns in there block. These are usually called "jet plates" or something stupid like that, even as they aren't anything like the jets i've been expecting to see.

So, my question is... What happened? Did everyone decide that microchannel designs were better when i looked the other way, or is it simply cost in manufacturing making the blocks with this design to impractical, or even impossible to turn a profit on?

I miss the good old days. It feels like only yesterday...
