Any sort of change that is enforced however beneficial, is strongly opposed because it requires some learning.

So if I force a UI on your desktop that goes into "rave mode" every 5 minutes where your icons spin around and you have to chase them down to restart your programs, it would still be beneficial since it is "change"?

You know there is actually something called productivity and Sinofsky didn't once explain how Metro improves productivity over the start menu. In fact he deleted points that showed how certain tasks required more clicks and or longer mouse strokes.
