0. The user interface is far superior in W7 in my opinion. Everything about W10's UI is a large step backwards as far as I am concerned. There is not one single thing about it that is an improvement.

1. When I close the lid on my laptop W7 does not turn it on, attempt to update it, and then leave it on with the lid closed. Maybe that's not a problem with a normal laptop but mine has a GPU in it that I use for games and CUDA programming and it can get VERY hot. Doing this is %&$%&@ STUPID!!! yet they have done nothing to stop it.

2. W7 does not come with dozens of useless apps (for me) that are loaded at startup and are impossible to uninstall or to stop from running. Cortana is one example, Skype is another, and there are several more.

3. W7 has a much more coherent user interface for configuration settings. I have lost count of how many times I have made a change on one W10 computer and then I can't find that option on a different computer.

...

I could go on but I will stop there.
