Speaking from the perspective of someone who likes to get work done: I feel that too many innovations in the user interface can be a major turn-off. My favorite CAD program uses many of the same tools that were a part of the original MacDraw program; greatly enhanced and more powerful, but much the same. So I get work done without learning a bunch of new stuff all the time.
Hey there are lots of people out there like me and familiarity is a strong factor in "acceptance". When I first became enchanted with the Mac it was largely because all of the apps that came out were similar enough so that I already knew how to use 90% of a new one. Even LC, has adhered to this approach (mostly). When it doesn't is when I start disliking it. I've begun to "dislike" a lot of things in many apps. Even LC. Give me a break. I'm pushing 80. (smile)
