Well ... some of it is jealousy, some of it is "It's the year of Linux!" (again, again, again, again, ... repeat ad nauseam)

But a lot of it is not to do with Windows at all, but the lack of care MS have taken with the UI and actual usability in a rush to move in directions a desktop OS probably shouldn't go. Win8 was an attempt to force a desktop OS into a Mobile device: it failed there, and reduced usability on the desktop at the same time. 8.1 didn't reverse that, Win10 didn't either - because I suspect MS will not admit it made a mistake. Not the first time for that either...

That pisses people off: they loved Win7, because it worked, and looked good, and was easy to use. It had flaws, yes - but it was genuinely better than its "replacement".

That's not a Windows-the-operating-system problem: at that, Win10 is pretty solid. It's a UI problem compounded by bone headed corporate stubbornness.

Don't take it personally is all I can say!
