It's not so much the practical task of getting used to it as it is that the
change forces you to re-think what is what. In which case GIMP 2.8 isn't the
first version to do something like that. For me, that honor goes all the way
back to 2.4 -- now from a technical standpoint the old behavior was still
present and accessible, the only change is it wasn't the default anymore. And
(unlike key shortcuts for save/export) there was NO way to reconfigure the
behavior at all. It was technically a simple change, but the way it forced you
to re-think how you used GIMP was decidedly earth-shattering.
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
