This is just plain old Microsoft bashing without understanding what exactly is going on. Windows is the most obvious one so we blame Microsoft when in most cases it is way out of their reach.
Losing IPv6 connectivity is a complex problem that many people face. This is due to the complexity of IPv6. It may well be that your ISP has adjusted something on their end that is causing things to go completely wrong for you. It could also be that it has to do with the drivers of your ETH/Wi-Fi card, Realtek is notorious for this. Has nothing to do with Microsoft at all.
I have had problems with real Realtek WiFi drivers in combination with specific hardware where the IPv4 connectivity ended up in a kind of strange loop, making the computers unusable. Realtek is notorious for their crappy drivers anyway.
Windows components use little RAM once they are started. Web browsers, Spotify and Game Launchers take up most of the memory these days. Windows still runs very well on old hardware with less RAM and an SSD. That SSD does a lot for the booting experience, by the way. The fact that a developer does not put together his application properly or demands a lot of resources is also something that Microsoft can do little about.
Just look at Edge, which automatically puts unused tabs in a standby mode so that they do not take up any memory. For me, Firefox takes up at least 3 gigabytes, while Edge only takes up 800MB. I have seen on other computers that Firefox or Chrome easily take up much more.
The more RAM you have, the longer it will take for your computer to come out of hibernate. Slow is very subjective, but good. I would rather look at the maker of your laptop and ask why the support for different S modes has not been properly implemented. That is often where the problem lies.
