It isn't that the OS is a bad idea, it is that old-timers are resistant to radical change.
I had a friend who went to automotive school back in the early 90s. When he graduated and got out into the workforce, all the old-timers were quitting because of OBD and later OBD2. They hated it. They felt that these new computer driven cars couldn't actually be *fixed*. You plugged a computer in, it told you what was wrong, and you swapped out the part. That wasn't being a mechanic in their eyes. They dropped like flies.
Now you've got a bunch of mechanics who mostly just swap out parts. But cars are more reliable, most repairs are quicker and less trouble-prone and you can find out all kinds of things about the vehicle that you wouldn't have known until too late prior to OBD.
The same thing is happening in health-care with EHR. Old docs hate EHR and meaningful use criteria. They absolutely resent that they're being measured not by volume or by diagnosis, but by metrics on improved quality of care and results. They don't like a PC suggesting things they might have overlooked. They're retiring in droves, getting out of the practice. The young Docs don't mind it at all.
You guys, the old time Admins, Mechanics and Docs, can all sit on your porches at the retirement community in Florida sipping lemonaid and complaining about the good ol' days - because I don't think this genie is going back in the bottle.
(Late edit: where are the grammar police when you need them? I am so ashamed).
