When a highly innovative product like OS X first releases, early adopters lap it up. These are people who readily, but carefully, adopt new ideas and are willing to give up old habits. Based on the evolving tone of posts here, I feel as though OS X is getting a lot of attention lately from skeptical late majority users, per the innovation adoption curve. These users are influenced by a need for familiarity & have their established habits mostly as Windows users. Some will go as far as arguing against logic in favor of familiar functionality. Could this noise be effectively filtered or will it become a bad sign for the future of OS X in the eyes of innovators/early adopters? What if Apple's innovative leadership shifts to more passive management sympathetic to a swell of users seeking familiarity, drowning the voice of the innovators and early adopters who helped shape a very cool product? I think that Apple is still a very innovative company & can point its own innovation inward to find ways to remain innovative, although it seems this can be quite a heavy challenge in the corporate world.
