Heh... I'm not afraid of new technology... or change. I'm afraid of the people that make them.
My concern is that a lot of it is either outright rubbish that takes a whole lot more to even come close to what used to be done (in other words, "Feature Loss") or that it has suddenly become much more difficult to do the same things(unreasonable or just stupid "Limitations" or supposed "Improvements" that actually aren't) or it takes a whole lot more machine resources ("Code Bloat" and "Crap Code") to do the same thing. Supposed "Improvements" to existing things, be they hardware, software or procedural, actually do scare the hell out of me because, more often than not, something breaks or simply goes away because of someone's cockamamie idea of what "simple", "useful", "effective", and "safe" is.
