You can make it behave just like 2.79 by setting up the hotkey the same way.
scroll down and add new
Only difference is it wont be 90c by default, and you wont get the same values as used previously. This however i think is by design, cause its often easier to work off the same default starting point rather than using the previously used values.
This may be adjustable in the preferences, and you could start a new topic discussing this and trying to figure out weather or not its possible.
And as a side note, i advice you to start a discussion with the goal to find a solution, and not attacking blender. More often than not, there will either be a solution, or a really good reason for why it is the way it is. In which case people may be able to change your mind, or you may be able to change theirs. And if an opinion becomes wide spread, you can be sure that BF will change it for the better. Example, there is currently a massive heated debate surrounding the icons, and weather or not they should be coloured or monochromatic.
Its hard to sympathise with people when they start off the discussion with a rant, especially when you list things for the sake of listing them, rather than making a point.
