Editorial With Windows 7 having made its grand debut, and with KDE4's vision making leaps and bounds forward with every release, we have two major software projects that have decided to implement some fairly drastic interface changes. Such changes are bound to receive some harsh criticisms - but the funny thing is, these criticisms usually come from people you least expect it from.

Well imo the problem is that sometimes you do not see the advantages/improvements of a changed system because you are so used to something else.

It is like what tux68 wrote: You want to do work yet you are "forced" to acclimate with that new system first.

It could very well be that after a while you'd like the new stuff or that you simply switch to something different.

Now companies have it pretty hard, on the one hand people ask for features otherwise they would not buy the new product -- as it is now none wants to pay for a service pack at least not from MS. Yet as soon as there are new features it is either too complicated/overloaded or too different.

Sometimes you simply have to learn something new for a gain.

actually I've never seen anyone buy Windows, they usually just buy a computer.
