A well-run office needs to keep upgrading to remain relevent. It shouldn't have to hold back because one or two employees are uncomfortable with new tools. IT personnel should neither be nostalgic nor regressive when it comes to the office's tech infrastructure. Actually said personnel should understand that there's almost always a better way to do something when it comes to computers. When I work on someone's ancient tech I wonder to myself how I ever got used to that. Every nerd should wonder the same thing from time to time.
Of course, I'm not a techno-evangelist. If you don't want Win8 you don't have to get Win8. Just don't get all Taliban on us when others want Win8.
