No, it does not. This is normal for that particular group
of people who are carrying their bad habits from one system
to another. However, within the group of people that you join
as a user of another system now, this is not at all normal.
This is something like when you switch from running long
distance to running short distance but keeping the same
technique. Or like switching from a VW Golf to a Cadillac
and keeping the same driving style. You look stupid and
loose. Get into the right habits, force yourself to accept
the ways of the system you are in now. That's normal.

                                 A pessimist fears that this is true.
