However, I have a great sympathy for those who are in that position, because that's where I was (and actually still am) with PulseAudio (which, I'll note, still doesn't work properly with Wine on 64-bit systems, at least not on Debian, and still provides no benefits I actually care about).
This is roughly how the exchange sounds from that perspective:
Person A: Try this new snibulator; it's great!
Person B: I'm happy with my old snibulator, thanks.
A: But this one allows you to snibulate even when you're under water!
B: Huh, that sounds cool, but I've never needed to do that.
A: Well you're just too stupid to realise that you need this after all.
B: Please stop telling me what to do.
A: Stop being so hostile! You're clearly too lazy to spend the time to work out that you really need waterproof snibulation. If I had any employees like you, I'd fire them on the spot! I'm so important!
The last line is the one that really grates on me, because it's so arrogant and so aggressively obnoxious. And I haven't hardly even had to exaggerate in my paraphrasing; many of the responses really are that hyperbolic.
