vSphere 6.0 GA - vSphere Client back, or not?

One of the worst parts of the vSphere 6 Beta was definitely this error message:
vsphere-client-no-vcenter-60rc

VMware promised to give it back in the GA release:

"vSphere C# Client beta builds had only host client functionality enabled. With the GA build, you can use the vSphere C# Client to connect to vCenter to do all activities just the way you would have done with previous releases. However, all new features from vSphere 5.1 onwards are available only in vSphere web client."

vSphere 5.5 U2 C# Client can now edit Hardware Version 10 VMs

Slightly hidden in vSphere 5.5 Update 2 there is a new vSphere C# Client that can edit Virtual Machines running the latest Virtual Hardware (vmx-10). Instead of getting an error message when trying to edit Virtual Machines with Hardware Version 10 you can now reconfigure these machines with the legacy C# client. Understandably you can only edit pre-5.1 features. All 5.1/5.5 features are still only available with the vSphere Web Client.

With the vSphere Client you would usually see the following error message:

You-cannot-edit-vm-version-10
