Cortana, the action center, notifications, improved design (many people like it regardless of what you personally think)
More appear not to like it compared to the number of Kool-Aid drinking fanboys who do.
Seems to be pretty buggy to me. There are quite a few threads right here on C9 complaining about how crappy it is. WP the same thing. Bugged as hell. It even crashes on MSNBC. MS's own browser, running on their own OS, crashing on their own website. Worse, I've had it crash many times on MSDN too. At work I now use FF for this reason alone.
Haven't found a single Store app that is actually worth the wasted disk space.
better Xbox integration, better Microsoft account integration and desktop syncing
Maybe, but I just had a horrible experience updating my CC info on this fancy new integrated account. It accepted my new CC for Xbox Live and Groove, but refused to accept it for Office 365. Had to call in and waste almost an hour while they tried to figure out why the CC didn't show up at all for Office 365 as a payment option (and they are all 3 on the same subscription page!).
For people using real applications, going to a more restricted way of multitasking isn't a step forward.
native ISO mounting and disk burning, game DVR, security improvements...
Windows 10 includes some stuff that people wanted.
Accept desktop users didn't ask to have the UI f^ched up just to make it look, feel and work like a phone UI. It's one thing to add options for those that like a toy UI, but it is something completely different to take away something that used to work perfectly well and replace it with a toy UI that has serious UX issues for many use cases.
Doesn't anyone have any pride left in what they do anymore? I honestly can't see how any MS employee can be proud of what Windows has been reduced into.
