Well, there goes 90% of my interest.

Honestly, I don't think I care what happens to the EU anymore. Cannonicity doesn't mean squat to me, so the stories I like won't be effected, and there's the off chance that the new stuff will be better than the old - or at least what's become of the old.

I will say that I'm not a fan of the idea of "rebooting" Zahn's characters, like Thrawn or Mara, if it means any substantial changes to them in the process, though. I honestly think they're closer to being sacred cows of the series to me than most of the movie characters.
