...I'm not. You're right, Rick. I could pick up Windows 8 and move on with very few hitches. My users, on the other hand... I can't blame MS for this, because it's prevalent in the tech industry, but it's people like you that design these interfaces to be 'simple'. The users of average intelligence, or who don't think logically, find it anything but. They get confused, and productivity goes down.
How many XP systems do I find where my users have reverted to the 'Classic' interface for their Start menu, Control Panel and Windows? They still consider XP to be cutting edge and confusing... Like the 'Ribbon'. I understand why MS doesn't offer a reversion to the 'old' interface, but they're ticking off a LOT of users. The only reason they keep their sales is that people are pretty much FORCED to buy them.
MS' next big move will be to FORCE people into 'The Cloud'. A lot aren't ready, a lot don't want to spend the extra money for bandwidth, and it's not the 'right fit' for a lot of people. But they will have no other alternative.
