You also have to install various other programs or Apps to get W10 to be a proper OS. I don't like the user interface when you open up My Computer either. It's disgusting.
IE is a requirement for backwards compatibility with many school, government, and business websites. Edge is actually a pretty decent browser. Not seeing a problem with having both. You can always remove the one you don't use (or not install it in the first place if you know what you're doing).
10 has literally every feature 7 had built in. if you require "various other programs or Apps to get W10 to be a proper OS", the same would be true for 7.
The standard user interface for "This PC" (formerly "My Computer") is indeed hideous. Good thing you can permanently fix it in about 12 seconds with no outside tools.
There are a (very) few reasons to prefer 7 over 10, but the ones you cited are basically just FUD.
