Strange how so many people around the world choose to use these "mostly useless" products.
But many people chose not to use these new products with their new-fang-dangled UI designed by some young whippersnapper fresh out of UI design school.
People avoided upgrading to Windows 8 because of the design and stuck with Windows 7 or even Windows XP, and the only way Apple could get the large percentage of Snow Leopard holdouts was to drop security updates. They kept using an older version of OSX because they knew it was a bad idea to reverse the default mouse scrollwheel behavior, auto hide the already narrowed-down grey flat scrollbars, the progressive flattening of the icons, and changing every colored UI elements to 50 shades of gray or just black.
These are all changes that added nothing useful to OSX, but were added because someone wanted change for the sake of change. It's like project managers see pics of the original Mac and think 'OOoooo...let's make our UI look awesomely retro"
