"I have seen ideas for UI changes which might be improvements, but the struggle to overcome all those decades of habit made them more like failures"

For users, any UI change has to provide an amount of benefit that exceeds the cost changing work habits (and that cost is rather high). If a UI change provides a benefit that doesn't reach that threshold, then it doesn't just seem like a failure, it is a failure.
