Strongly depends on your use case. There's many small things I do greatly appreciate. Here's some of them:
1. DPI support is massively improved from Windows 7. In comparison, Windows 7 looks really clunky.
2. I am a fan of the Ribbon UX design.
3. Multi-monitor support is much better from Windows 7. You don't have to go find 3rd party software to augment stuff that feel should be standard. Windows 10 furthers that with virtual desktops. Tying in with one, if you have different DPI requirements with monitors, you can set them individually on each monitor now.
4. IE8 can go die in a fire for all I care. Won't happen until Windows 7 is dead though (trust me, corporations will hang on to it kicking and screaming until the bitter end despite the new lifecycle changes next year).
5. Windows 7 does not do native VHD and ISO mounting. You need a 3rd party tool to do that.
6. On-board drivers have improved a bit. It may be a small difference but moving towards more efficient on-board drivers means better efficiency standards.
7. The command prompt is getting much needed love in Windows 10 which is a good thing.
8. I do use some of these modern programs (Videos for example).

1. Fast Ring will see more new stuff and potentially new fixes.
2. Less polish and potentially more bugs. This will look ugly.
3. Potential much bigger gap between Fast Ring vs Slow Ring. Remember that the requirement for a build to go to Slow Ring is if the Fast Ring collectively sends enough feedback to indicate the build is stable enough. We have the power to reject a build from going to the Slow Ring.
If #2 sounds unappealing to you (and it will happen and it will **** you off), now is your time to go back to the Slow Ring.

Very buggy but this build did not appear to pass the requirements to reach the Insider's group for testing so officially we will get a later build.
About DPI support I have a small question if you will: my desktop is on 4k resolution and my DPI is about 200% obviously because the icons are too small at 4k res, the problem is it looks very buggy in many prgorames and their menus and even certain games wont start at that DPI settings.
When you say DPI support is massively improved do you mean it generally looks better or they also solved these compatibility view issues somehow?
The main problem area is with Java based programs (e.g. Eclipse, LibreOffice). Java does not seem to translate DPI settings well but this is not something Microsoft can support well on their end. The program developers will have to update their programs to the new DPI settings. It's not just Java programs as well but programs that need to be updated.
Do note I did not get a 4k monitor until after I had Windows 8.1 so I don't have much data to compare to with Windows 7.
A free upgrade to pirates too? wtf..
I strongly suspect that it's a desperation move only to happen in China to get them to technology that's supported and that news outlets misinterpreted that.

* Get notified when new cheats are added
* Request which games get new trainers
