When will the madness stop?

Sort of a semi-rant/vent here...
First we get RLMP which offer the use of CoffeeGrinder or BootStrap 2 (but really only good for building the basic framework and not the full site and has not seen any love since 2014). Then along comes RSD with CoffeeGrinder. Then RFF featuring Foundation. Now RBB featuring BootStrap. I am going to have to hazard a guess that soon to follow will be:
RSS - Responsive Skeleton Styler
RYY - Responsive YAML Yeller
RTT - Responsive TukTuk Trauma
RGG - Responsive Gumby Grabber
RKK - Responsive Kube Killer
RGG - Responsive Groundwork Gopher
And all the other frameworks to follow....

Don't get me wrong, I think that the programs are great, but why are they all separate and not rolled into one. After all RLMP has the choice of CoffeeGrinder or BootStrap 2, and the option to vote on having Foundation 5 added in (poor forgotten program like SCCP!)

And please, PLEASE get rid of the 75 page limit... IT. MAKES. NO. SENSE. THIS. IS. 2016.

Can you use all of the responsive programs in the making of one single site? Would that make sense to do something like that? The way that these aps are being marketed would lead me to believe that that is the way to go. I absolutely really really need all of these different new responsive apps. Previous is the marketing of what I am being told each time. I bought the Foundation framer and have not used it yet. It may be retired before I ever use it.
I need hugely more amounts of practical information of why I need this or that. The tumultuous avalanche of all of these new responsive applications is making things nearly impossibly complicated.
Every time I read the sales pitch to buy the new software I am left sitting here with my eyes glazed over like deer in the headlights.

No, you could not use them all in a single site, but you could choose to use the one you want from a single program like what they were doing with RLMP (CoffeeGrinder or BootStrap). So instead of having RSD (CoffeeGrinder), RFF (Foundation), RBB (BootStrap) you would have a single program and choose your framework from the start.

As a side note if I had know that RBB was coming I would not have bought into RFF.

Caveat Emptor!

I intend to continue using the CC software, just not necessarily buying all of this new stuff without knowing exactly how it will help me on my current site building needs.
I did use the RLM and then the RSD in the making of my site then later bought the RCS and added much content to the site with that. I also used the CC website insight, form maker, sitemapper, menu maker. Went to use the button builder but it had been retired. Guess that it has been completely superseded by all of the other new responsive applications.
I am not finished remaking the site from VSD, about half way done. The site is up live with half new RSD pages and half old VSD pgs. It is not getting any traffic at all practically. I tried using the insight to fix the SEO problems but have not had success with that. I tried using the image mapper and did not have success with that either. No, was not using image mapper to fix SEO problems was using it to make the bulk of the home pg in the conversion from VSD but it did not work out.
I have not been shown how this new bootstrap umpty scrunch app meets my needs now of my current site building challenges.

I waited so long to see Foundation added to RLM... but instead it arrived in its own RFF package.
Was all excited to try that until I saw your post, Chef Scott. :D
Now I have to decide if I want to stick with Foundation or wait for one of these :
RSS - Responsive Skeleton Styler
RYY - Responsive YAML Yeller
RTT - Responsive TukTuk Trauma
RGG - Responsive Gumby Grabber
RKK - Responsive Kube Killer
RGG - Responsive Groundwork Gopher

Hey PB... if you read the email they sent out it will be part of RSD 2.0 both FF and BS. If you own them both(FF and BB) the RSD Update will be free and you will have the best of all worlds.

No RSD for me, I had to stop spending the grocery $$$ on software. :P
I recently got the FF beta. Hoping I find time to use it in the next few weeks or so. I've gotten so used to using a really bare-bones grid in the HTML Editor, all the fancy CC/Foundation stuff will take some time to get used to.

I always meant to try Gumby (downloaded it years ago). I'll be looking forward to RGG - Responsive Gumby Grabber :lol:

Can someone list the page limits for RSD, RFF, and RBB.
I think some might have changed with updates and want current numbers.
Will these change to higher values in the future?
