Operating Systems: to upgrade - or NOT

Have modern operating systems reached a maturity in which the industry participants (e.g. developers, net techs, etc) are no longer enthused when a new version becomes available?

I started a blog post 2 weeks ago about Windows 8 that had a direction that is very pointed about "not willing to learn something new". I delayed posting it because I always like to give long posts a couple of days of more review. The longer I delayed, the more I read commentary about Windows 8, the more I think my original premise was not going to add anything to the mix.

All operating systems are in the end - just a product. You can choose to not upgrade and certainly you can choose to 'tack' to another operating system at any time.

So this is why I ask... have operating systems reached a point where the 'new stuff' isn't enough for you to make the move?
