You're right, but there are millions of people who "can't figure it out" because I think they've just lost the ability to learn. It's pathetic. On the other hand, MS has created a very refined product over time that is easy to use and intuitive. The change alone is a barrier because people don't like change. Between the different Guis, menu names, and look & feel stuff, many people won't switch.

And then there are the legitimate needs like MS Access, flowcharting, etc I did a bunch of searching for a replacement for Access and nothing came close. The time spent trying to make another do what Access can do is a waste. I would rather spend a few hundred dollars on a product that will do what I want in a timely fashion than to spend hours or days trying to come up with a cheap or free workaround. I've done it, and my time is valuable.
