Say what you will, but they will make money off of it regardless.
True. A lot of people are going to buy 4th Ed because it's FR. Whether they're going to actually use it is another thing entirely, though i can see new DMs starting out with 4th Ed. because it's simpler, and moving on to 3.5 Ed later on in terms of detail and difficulty. Some are going to stay at 4th Ed though.
Personally, i think they just wanted to make something that was easy to get into. That they effectively ticked off every FR gamer in sight by putting the world on its head is a sign they did it wrong.
