I think it's a real pain but I somehow adapt to it, partly because as a developer there are always so many "shiny new things" that adapting goes with the territory.

However regarding these modern changes, where it really annoys me is for people like my 81 year old father who didn't realise that you could click on the top of a window and move it even if there was no bar at the top. It seems like for the past couple of years he has been moving windows by resizing them.
These changes make things a lot harder for the older, non-expert, users.

I get the impression that these sorts of UI changes are not really taking some of the less young users into account.
