ß (sz) has not been completely eliminated. After *short* vocals it has
been replace with ss (Kuß => Kuss, Fluß, => Fluss). But after *long*
vocals, it is still used (Maß, Gruß, ...).
PS: I was quite disappointed with the reform of German ortography. I'd
have favoured much more radical steps, like elimination of
capitalization of the noun.
