Let me google that for you. Maybe you'll debug something for me someday.
"Baby Duck Syndrome denotes the tendency for computer users to <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki//wiki/Imprinting_(psychology)>"imprint" on
the first system they learn, then judge other systems by their similarity
to that first system. The result is that "users generally prefer systems
similar to those they learned on and dislike unfamiliar systems." The
term may have been inspired by popular understanding of the work,
experiences, and observations of <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki//wiki/Konrad_Lorenz>Konrad Lorenz."
Or, for example, why I'm still running a 1984 copy of Brief as my
text editor in a DOS window on a dual-24" quad processor PC.
