Again, I've never had an issue upgrading my PS3, Android phone or

To be fair, that statement can't be entirely true. For example, there
have been at least two upgrades to the PS3 OS that bricked hardware
<= this is the one that killed my first PS3
I also don't think 'UI changes' are the only things users have to get
used to after an upgrade. There are always bugs introduced, no? For
example, I have an issue with my new PS3 after a recent upgrade, that
the Hulu app causes the console to lock up and reboot. My GalaxyS4 isn't
without flaw either. A recent OTA update seems to have affected the GPS
in a negative way, so it takes several minutes to lock on to my location
now and it didn't before.
Updating Cyanogenmod is also a 'block off your entire weekend' kind of
task, not something done lightly - almost bricked my Evo4G when I went
from CM7 to CM9. Maybe Cyanogenmod is a poor example though since the
manufacturers aren't really on board there - then again maybe a good
example as they aren't really on board for us, either. Maybe it's
improved since then though?
