FileMaker abandons customers with FileMaker 12 upgrade?

Post

We have a small business, FileMaker Server serves ~20 databases to 18 users.  Many of our databases are related to each other. For example, Inventory is related to Assembly, Orders, and Purchasing, and there are many others.  in order to maintain the integrity of our data with the FileMaker 12 upgrade, as I understand it, I am going to have to convert every database to .fmp12 format, upgrade to FileMaker 12 on every computer, upgrade to FileMaker Server 12, all at once, and pray that it works. I'll probably have to edit filenames by hand in every inter-database relationship.  Please tell me I am missing something because right now, I wish I had just done everything in SQL.
