I'm sorry, but if a carpenter suddenly doesn't know how to work a hammer because the handle is now green instead of orange, it is the carpenters fault.

Agreed.  But if a carpenter picks up a hammer and the handle is curved instead of straight, and it's uncomfortable for him to swing, and the way it feels in his hand makes it harder for him to do his job, then he's going to stick with the straight handled hammer.  Blaming him for being "old school" or "unwilling to get with the times" , or explaining the superior aerodynamics of the curved handle hammer won't change that.
