There have been a number of improvements that alone make it worth it. It also supports the developers who've provided fabulous support for this product since 2013.
I was recently retiring an old box that had CMANO v1.03 loaded on it. Wow! what a difference from the last major update of CMANO! The latest CMANO is world's apart from the original 2013 release and the developers did it largely for free. I hope that they'll be able to continue that tradition with CMO!
There is also the matter of scenarios. Eventually, community scenarios will only be available for CMO, taking advantages of feature not found in CMANO.
Sure, there are presently some bugs in CMO. The developers have an excellent track record of fixing high priority bugs pretty quickly as evidenced by the number of updates already made to the base release.
You and the rest, you forgot the first rule of the fanatic: When you become obsessed with the enemy, you become the enemy.
