No MS is not stuck doing the same thing indefinable but when you are jumping cold turkey then yes its a huge problem. Hence the evolution of the start menu and start button. Look at the progression from nt4/95 to 7. Then you go from 7 to 8 and its not a evolutionary change, its a revolutionary change. You just come off as a dick and pratt by insinuating people can't figure stuff out or are to lazy. You most likely grew up and studied or work with technology it brings an innate curiosity to find things. I'm sure a Mechanics can say the same about people as well when it comes to cars. Doctors to human functionality, Geologists to rocks. I use a powershell on servers, if you don't know how to use powershell I am not going to tell you you're to stupid to use a server. The software should be designed to be first and foremost USABLE. Having Usability in return usually results in good software. If MS feels that its a better usability to have gestures and obfuscated functionality then MS better sure as hell demonstrate and illustrate the benefits of such features. Telling people to go to youtube to find and answer is not an acceptable solution. People don't care that much about computers they have their own priorities if they can't figure something out they will get frustrated and put the said item down and walk away. Also what wrong with keep the same design if it works. Why reinvent the wheel. Change for the sake of change is not a good reason. Last time I checked cars have 4 wheels. Books still have covers and pages on the inside. Phones still have dial pads etc..
