Yep, IT people often think the users are supposed to make their job easier, when the reality is that it's the other way around.

So it's ok to keep incompetent users ? Hope hospitals dont think the same about doctors.

Hospitals expect doctors to be good doctors, not computer gurus.

Companies expect good salesmen to be good salesmen, not computer gurus.

...etc.

And companies expect the IT department to make the people who earn them money more productive without costing too much.   Windows 8 on desktops isn't going to make them any more productive, it's going to cost a bunch, and it's going to make at least some users complain.   Most smart IT managers will steer clear of it.
