There's one big issue that make me want to stay with 1.5: it's not
nearly as easy or as comfortable to write a new post in 2.0 as in 1.5.
I'm not sure how serious or how deep that problem is. Some of it might
even be customizations I made in 1.5 that I haven't yet made in 2.0.
however, there are three specific issues:
1. The input textarea for new posts is about half the size it is in 2.0.
Writing is what WP is all about. Give me enough space to work in.
2. The font used on this page for input is too small. It needs to be at
least two points larger by default.
3. The category list is hidden behind a button rather than being up
front as it is in 1.5.2. That means what used to be a one step process
to change the category is now a two-step process. Ditto for the Post
status, post slug, etc.
Short version: I want the old write post page back. The new page looks
snazzier but make sit harder to write. What I like about WordPress is
how easy it makes it to write articles. Anything that improves the
experience is good. Anything that detracts from it is bad.
