There are good explanations of why Windows is technically inferior to Unix-like operating systems. But my virulent hatred of Windows is actually less about architecture (or even about freedom) and more about the offensive insults against the user that litter Windows as it currently exists:
Unsolicited notifications and popups about Microsoft stuff it wants me to install.
A plethora of apps it won't let me uninstall, even bullshit like XBox Game Bar.
PC starts in "S-mode", which means non-Microsoft apps aren't allowed to run.
I changed my settings to allow installing non-Microsoft apps. Windows automatically changed it back.
I deleted the Edge exe (because you aren't allowed to uninstall Edge through the Add or Remove Programs interface). Windows automatically restored it.
Microsoft Defender Antivirus sometimes just up and deletes files it thinks are suspicious, without asking me. (These files were important.)
I opened the computer to be accosted by a screen saying something like "Your device needs a few more Microsoft services set up".
You don't control your own device if it runs Windows. You are treated like a guest in your own house. Nevermind the sophisticated concerns about design or freedom. I hate Windows because Windows hates me.
