Change is good

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” - Charles Darwin

Some people hate change. They just can't let go of the familiar and even bother to try and learn something new. Evolution takes care of them.

ZDNet's Ed Bott gives a good example of change in the technology world. In his Microsoft Report blog, he recounts how his colleague gripes about the user interface changes in Windows 7, the latest version of the operating system, which is still in development. As Bott himself notes, you can't please everyone. But to all those people who keep on complaining about how they have to keep up with the changes in software or hardware or everytime their favourite website has a new design, just remember Darwin.
