The new start/user interface is a CF. Why change something that truly has worked great since...2001?
And both Win7 and Win8, once you peel away the "fancy" shell, a lot of the dialog boxes are just like out of XP. If doing a revamp, why not go all the way?
And don't get me started on the "ribbons" in Office 2010. Once you eventually find your command, the dialog box that opens up is, again, from XP. It has just been made far too confusing.
And, I really like Windows, I have very little problems with either XP or Win7. But a redesign just for its own sake? Maybe it will attract "fresh" users...
