More people care about the UI then care about the code behind it. It's cheaper to alter the UI and pass it off as a new version, and LOTS do this...

What player is that?
I'm still using Winamp as it plays FLAC and my whole collection is in FLAC. every other player I have used I don't like. I'm stuck with winamp but I hate the UI. I used to use Jaangle but its UI is even worse.

My pet peeve is when an application has a misture of UI designs. For example, Symantec Endpoint Protection. The main window looks like a cartoon while all the sub-windows look more professional:

Very nice presentation to the original poster. I agree completely. A change of UI is completely useless in my option. It throws the user off and I feel like the public is prone to viruses posing as faux software - since UI's are consistent, they'll think that the virus is just another part of the antivirus program. And what is it with corporations ripping off Window's style?

It's so it looks modern. If no company did UI changes for major versions this thread would be called "Why don't most major.........."

I wouldn't buy a new car if it looked like it was build in the 90s

Because everyone knows that without a massively different interface nothing else has changed either. It's just common sense.

People are very visual. Minor functionality changes can be called major if it LOOKS different.
