I have been working on InfoPath for almost 12 years from the days of InfoPath 2003. We have developed CRM application based on InfoPath called CRMNxtGen. CRMNxtGen was runner up as best solution across south Asia Microsoftpartners.
Ok, reason behind all these stories is Microsoft going to retire support and future development of InfoPath desktop client and SharePoint form services.
InfoPath 2013 and SharePoint 2013 InfoPath form services will be the last version of InfoPath / Services.
We expecting more information on this during SPCON 2014, and here is office blog which has information about InfoPath support life cycle.
