Sell me on Living Greyhawk

I have glanced through the site on Wizards and I don't really recognize what I see as the classic Greyhawk Campaign. All the names are the same but the world has shifted underneath my feet.

I find that Greyhawk has shifted from a heroic Campaign setting where players can grow to be mighty by delving discovering the secrets of the world they live in to a more porriage fantasy setting.

Recently, I had a chance to talk with Gygax about this and he agreed that the new Greyhawk is nothing like he envisioned. (His vision are contained within the first two Gord books) Where High Fantasy intermengled with Pulp Sword & Sorcery adventure that often was highly localized but had Oerth-wide consquences as the adventurers advanced in levels.
