It's just another case of Sequel Syndrome--everybody enters the theater wanting something different. You can't follow the original, because then it's just a bid for more ticket sales. You can't make it revolutionary, because then you're no longer "true to the roots" of the first film. You can't ignore what was introduced in the first film, but you're expected to make bigger revelations than the first did, and so on.

There is no possible iteration of a Windows OS that wouldn't get panned by some groups for whatever reason. Its userbase is so large that the expectations generated are extremely disparate. Doesn't anyone see that there are roughly equal numbers of articles panning Vista for including eyecandy like Aero (HOMG IT EATS RAM!) and panning Vista for not doing more to revolutionize the UI (HOMG THIS IS XP!)?
