I had the sudden thought to check what my toolbar on wikispecies and enwikiversity is. It's the "classic". I haven't edited on either since before the "enhanced" toolbar was made available. This suggests to me that every editor who was editing prior to 2013(?) on a project and who didn't opt in to the enhanced toolbar is still using the "classic"—many of them without realising that there is an alternative.

The "new" toolbar is hopeless for me. I use a laptop with a smallish screen for all Wikimedia activity. The vast majority of that activity is on enWS. The narrow height of the "classic" toolbar is ideal in the ProofreadPage Extension. I have tried to use the "new" toolbar and it increased the amount of scrolling I needed to do, which caused a marked decrease in productivity. It simply uses far too much screen real estate for me to function adequately as a normal user.
