You've been using WIndows for 20 years and you dont know Alt+Tab or Win+Tab?
Note that the complaints are *entirely* aesthetics/comfort-driven. It's not about backward-compatibility, or even usability. It's that it's not Windows 7 Service Pack 2.
They would rather have seen WindowsRT try (and fail) to justify itself all alone against Android and iOS (and the failure would be for obvious reasons), but they really don't care. They would rather see Microsoft (and Windows) lost marketshare to Android as opposed to actually rising to meet the challenge of Android.
Aren't these also a LOT of the same folks that have complained that things are *meh* as far as operating systems, applications, games, and whatnot? So what happens when Microsoft actually gets a clue and changes things? "You changed - therefore I'll stand pat."
