So, why does everyone hate the new one so much (aside from the aforementioned fixed font size)? I looked at some screenshots, and it seems like they just made it look like Slack, HipChat, or (insert name of other modern chat client here)...
Is this an "old man yells at cloud" situation?

According to the release notes that go along with every new iteration of Windows 10 (1507, 1511, 1607, 1703 and now 1709) it's pretty clear they've been spending a lot of time trying to make sure Windows remains high-DPI friendly, can work with different monitors that each have their own DPI settings, etc.

Besides, we're one of very few generations to live through two palindrome years. Perhaps the third, I suppose. 99 & 101, 999 and 1001, 1991 and 2002. One may as well enjoy oneself after a healthy dose of hard work and helping others.
You know, even in the first century AD, there where people that lived longer than 20 years. So a single person living through 55 - 66 -77 - 88 -99 - 101- 111 would not be so hard to imagine. I don't think they numbered their years like that, though, so they might not have known how special they were.
