Yes but the specific example of desktop user being affected by new
clustering technologies didn't make sense to me and is poorly chosen
IMO.  I don't think you have found a way to explain it either.  If you
want to talk about conflicts, say the way SELinux was introduced might
be a much better example.  It is important to recognize however that
sometimes technologies don't fit neatly into "enterprise" vs otherwise.
 For instance,  systemd fits both categories just fine.
