Its more of an attitude than aptitude problem. People are resistant to change...


It is not a question of being resistant to change, but finding the whole usability approach ugly and lacking any intelligible justification.

It like being forced to drive a rainbow colored Fiat Mulitpla. No matter how it drives, it is still an ugly car.

Microsoft seriously needs to get over its Playmobil design fetish. Unfortunately, I do not see this happening anytime soon.
