Again, my original question is not to bash or question the validity of classical music to others. It was, if you look back at the question, more of when you started to like it as I was wondering if that 'development' would come with age, similarly to my transition from Aussie fruit bombs through the gamut to my current tastes for mostly burgundy.
I don't think age has anything to do with it. As stated above, I started listening to it when I was 18. I also took a music appreciation class in college. And I currently (sometimes) read biographies of composers to understand the music in context to it's time. The only thing that has changed with me is the breadth and depth of my appreciation.
I take no offense in that people may not want to listen to 200+ year old music
