I'd like to know others opinion on Esri's apparent abandonment of the former Local Government Information Model (LGIM).  I used this model to update my own feature classes periodically.  Now suddenly this Solutions Deployement Tool has taken over.  I tried to use this new tool, and of course, it only works using Pro which I can't stand and don't like what I see.  I don't want to develop an out of the box solution that Esri thinks will work for every local government everywhere.  I want to make sure I have all the new updates to the former LGIM.  I'm still not convinced that Pro is an improvement over ArcMap in anyway and I don't appreciate Esri abandoning products simply because it suits them.
