Actually, the majority seem perfectly fine with it. Only a very, very small minority have spoken against it.
I disagree that, "the majority seem perfectly fine with it" as seen in this one thread, the majority of comments are negative; along with outside this forum in checking a Google search. If a public poll existed this would be the overall response.
That's only the people who decided to voice their opinion, which is obviously going to favor the negative. The vast majority of users felt there was no need to comment, and therefore can be assumed to at least be neutral towards the new design.
Also, it's pretty late to be complaining about it. The old design is not coming back, no matter what.
