DED articles like this are really coming across as whining fanboyism and really degrade the quality of this site. Boo fucking hoo hoo, a second rate news paper ran a yellow journalism piece so the obvious best course of action: immediately write a 1500 word diatribe crying about it.
Oh the huge manitee.
The article gets a few things wrong, but the basic premise is quite sound.
iOS 7 is a worse operating system than iOS 6.
And it's not only less stable, it's visually uglier. Now, stability is important, people notice crashes, but ugly is always in your face.
Apple knew how ugly it was before it was released, plenty of us told them, and they had plenty of opportunity to backtrack and not release something so incredibly ugly. But too many egos were apparently tied up in that visual abomination, and they released anyway.
Now they get to pay the price.
As for me? I'm sticking with 6 for now. If Apple doesn't fix this mess by the time my current devices break, I may have to consider a switch to Android. And I don't want to do that.

I have had iOS since the iPhone 3GS and yes, for me, iOS 7 is the buggiest yet.
Besides the famous bugs, I also had a few bugs that were not publicised and, trolling forums for solutions, I discovered a large community of angry apple users...
An example? Hanging sync. Never had this issue before. Luckily fixed with a restore.
Here is a page I found that might be of interest for iPhone 4/4s users:
But it's not only bugs... I would argue that iOS 7 is currently intended to please american users with the latest phones... out of the few new functionalities, airdrop (https://discussions.apple.com/message/23078708#23078708) and iTunes radio (only available in the states) did not make it to my european iPhone 4s. So iOS is not as exciting to me as it can be to others, that's a fact.
As for the sluggishness of the OS on an iPhone 4s and the fact you can't revert (http://www.extremetech.com/computing/167450-downgrading-from-ios-7-to-ios-6-why-apple-wont-let-you), this alone will force me to upgrade my phone. So if this was the intention. Congrats, you did it.
Archaic newspapers that can't get their head around 'change.'
iOS 7 is the beginning. It's not the end.
Give it 6 more years.
I like it. It's not perfect yet. But it is promising. I know like it more than iOS6.
It's still iOS.
Crisper. Cleaner. Better designed.
And I think more elegant.
Lemon Bon Bon.
I think it's classy.
Perhaps this is meant to make Obamacare 'glitches' look reasonable. Wow, I just used Obamacare and reasonable in the sentence - that also qualifies as a glitch.
