What has happened to us?

Dungeons & Dragons, the game of fantasy roleplay. This game is supposed to live for ever, but with the release of the fourth edition of this great game, the D&D community has been seperated. As if a fence has been placed between us. The seperation is between those who like the classics (3.5 and back) and those who like fourth edition.
The classics are, well, classic. Forever in the hall of fame. Those who favor the classics are generally those who have been with the hobby longest.
A wise man once said "If fourth edition was called anything but D&D, we wouldn't have a problem with it." There may be some truth to this. Fourth edition is a good game, but it puts a bad taste in the mouth of those who have played D&D since the beggining simply because it seems to be a table top version of W.O.W. this may be a little extreme but it does seem that way.
In summary, why do we have to fight? Can't we just agree to disagree?
Just my two coppers on the subject.
