Baby Duck Syndrome – or – “Why You’re a Luddite”

So, in a nutshell, take the leap! Update from Windows Vista.

In human–computer interaction, baby duck syndrome denotes the tendency for computer users to “imprint” on the first system they learn, then judge other systems by their similarity to that first system.

The result is that “users generally prefer systems similar to those they learned on and dislike unfamiliar systems”.

The issue may present itself relatively early in a computer user’s experience, and it has been observed to impede education of students in new software systems or user interfaces.
