Do we really need to "Get Used" to things?

A good, near rant, from Leo Notenboom:  "I responded to a question a couple of days ago regarding Windows 8 that ended with 'Why did Microsoft do this, when everybody wanted the familiar old XP style?'."

I get the idea that he doesn't like Windows 8 either, but argues that's irrelevant.  It is what it is and you *do* have to 'Get used to it.'  Worth reading.
