Not a wholesale new OS
Don't get me wrong: iOS 4 is a good update. But if you were expecting a big bang change, you'll be disappointed. The Mail app and the wallpaper are in-your-face changes, but the rest of iOS 4's additions and changes are either more subtle or remain as potential as yet untapped by applications. We won't really experience the full force of iOS 4 until a notable number of apps are rewritten to take advantage of it.

The good news for IT: This change over time should help both you and users adjust more easily.
