It is what makes "linux". It's what empoweres "linux". If our volunteer devs, testers, bug triagers all had to work on the same project goals and road maps, "linux" would fail as it is today. We all do this to be different for as many reasons as there are people using "linux", for reasons not available in closed source propriety operating systems. Differsity is the nature and strength of our community.
Discussions like these are important for multiple levels of understanding. I am not dismissing it, but embrace the information the discussion brings.
The only thing constant about change is that it is constant. Should we fear this? Not if we expect that change is inevitable. Then it is rational and exiciting.
Where the heck is the spell-check?
