I'll just leave this here....
Start menu doesn't work with 'remote input' i.e. keyboard? What a crock of ****, windows 95 onwards works FINE with a keyboard, you don't even need a mouse.
I've not tried the start screen since removing W8 but how well does that work with a keyboard? '****' is all I can think of really.
Start menu not customisable? I can add/remove items/folders and functions just as you can on the start screen, it's got the same customisation. Oh no actually that's a lie, I can switch between classic and W7 start menu in W7 which ironically makes the start menu MORE
customisable than the start screen!
Expandability? I can't see any relevance.
Yeah start menu isn't touch friendly I'll agree, it's an utter pain in the arse trying to use it via RDP on an ipod touch.
