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.

RE[2]: "aversion to change"?

Member since:

The problem is that technically inclined people will only apply the above reasoning to their own situation. As soon as a Windows users says "But I'm happy, why should I change?", he's an idiot, he doesn't understand anything about computers, and he doesn't like change.

There's a fairly well-known expression which applies to that statement: "All generalizations are inherently false (including this one)."

"Technically-inclined" is not a synonym for "zealot" or "fundamentalist," not by any stretch of the imagination.
