It's new to them.
So let's look at the scenario with your additions:
Young guy, on the job one week, pushing "newer stuff."
Old people, happy with old technology, established employees.
Do you not see where my advice still fits perfectly? Best way to get people to change is to convince them change is good. Best way to convince people IRL is to let them get to know you before you start telling them how they're doing it the old fashioned way. I know this will grate on you but this task is easily accomplished through relationship building and will be almost impossible to accomplish without it.
