It definitely has. Always consider the age of the thread you're reading. I'd also recommend the CC1 if you're considering the Silvia. The Quickmill Silvano is similar in features to the CC1 but it is about $300 more.
If you can stretch I'd recommend looking at HX's since you mention milk drinks. The transition time for the SB/thermoblock machines (such as the CC1 and Silvano) isn't as long as as it is with SBDU's but as someone who went from an SBDU (Silvia) to a machine that can pull a shot and steam simultaneously I'd highly recommend considering the possibility while you're looking to purchase instead of wishing you had spent a little more later on.
If it's 30+ milk drinks then seriously consider stretching for an HX or you won't be doing anything other than making drinks for the entire duration of the party. Silvia is right out for that need. I recall spending ~10 minutes making 2 lattes with my Silvia but I'm not sure if my memory is exaggerating how bad it was. I'm fairly sure that I'm at least twice as fast on the new machine though.
