Where's the Revolution?

Is anyone else fed up with new OS and Office adjustments?

Is anyone else just plain fed up and disgusted with the cycle of installing, configuring and troubleshooting new software just so companies can make money?

While I have written extensively about the new features in Office 2007 as a former information worker myself, I cannot imagine the frustration of those who simply need to write letters or create spreadsheets and now must readjust to an entirely new interface.

Ditto Vista.  Are the search capabilities really so significant as to make one rethink the storage metaphor of the operating system?

I am truly amazed that so far there has been no outcry.  Perhaps when these programs go mainstream and past the early adopters something may happen.
