If you don't like change then my advice to you is to get out of the IT industry. Change is the only thing we are assured of and we can plan for!
Nobody like changes but everybody like progress
Changes which detoriorates the productivity of end-users, reduces functionalities or, in more generic terms, do not make the product better compared to the previous versions are regressions
This is true of every products, not just operating systems.
Ask yourself the question for everything: what is my benefits, my gains if I buy/get this product?
I did try Windows 8 and after a long try-out, as far as I am concerned and for my needs, the pros do not outweight the cons.
Other people may have other usages and Windows 8 might a better product for them.
In any case, we will see how Windows 8 will sell in the next months or years and depending on how it sells, Microsoft will alter Windows 9
