This is not the easy transition nor does it have as many tangible benefits for "regular users" as you would like to paint it. The usage model for dicking around with twitter, email and facebook has been largely solved by smartphones already, tablets to a lesser extent. Microsoft is incredibly late to the media consumption game and their approach will likely anger many users, normal and otherwise.

i would like to hear how the new visual presentation is going to inconvenience, let alone anger a regular user beyond the initial shallow learning curve; because what you have said instead is "other companies have already tried to make content consumption easy so microsoft shouldn't bother". for the average user, for whom nearly 70% of their time is spent in a web browser, the learning curve consists entirely of learning how to pull out the charms bar.
