I guess it depends on what you mean by giving a new edition "a chance". If you mean "buy the core game and play it for a while", then it's reasonable to not do that if you're content with your current game. If instead you mean "look into the rules etc to see if it might be to your liking", then it should be non-controversial to say everyone should give it a chance in that sense.

D&D Next's designers, but until they show that my preferences will be supported in a way that is different and/or superior to what I have available to me I see no reason to buy into Next, especially when what I've seen from WotC seems to indicate that the elements of the game I like might be on the outs come the next iteration of the play test.
This ain't personal to me. I look at editions of D&D like completely separate games. Honestly I probably wouldn't post nearly as much as I do if I didn't find discussing RPGs a fun hobby all on its own.

Exactly. Keep It Simple. 4E is all about helping to make the DM's life easier.The point of my approach is that the wife can grab the module read it once, and play it as written with maybe a few adjustments on the fly. All the modification is on the character, not the modules (lots less work for her).
...such advice would have been nice if applied to the rules bloated PC classes of course - but you can't have everything I guess.

Yes, they are a business. Yes, businesses should try to make money. But angering your customers is a bad way to achieve that goal (especially in a small pool like the rpg community). I think a lot of people strongly dislike the new edition every four-five years (i know when 3.5 came out os soon after 3e, it really bothered me).

As I said, that's not fair. Just because someone likes 4E does not mean they should be spending money on 5E. Find out about it, see what it's about, because it might just be more to your tastes than 4E? Absolutely, if you're a fan of what WotC has done with D&D it would be strange to not even find out what they're doing with it now. Lay down hard cash for it, just because it says "Dungeons & Dragons" on the cover? Doing so, or not doing so, is a personal value judgment and says nothing about you as a gamer.

They need to pick an audience for the product and aim squarely at it. Haters gonna hate so you might as well make exactly what that audience wants to see and not worry about trying to force the people who hate broccoli to eat broccoli.
