Is it just me or what, but I don't have an issue with Windows 8 Start Button. I'm sorry to sound negative, but what is wrong with not having the Start Button. You still have access to all your software and apps within Windows so why do you need a Start Button when everything you need is at hand better than it was with Windows 7, its just more organised that's all. It's still there, but not in the way it used to be. I haven't an issue with the Start Button not being there. Screaming at Microsoft wont bring back the Start Button. I thought Stardock has resolved this issue. You could learn the basic shortcut commands. Press F1 type in shortcuts...

Do you have any evidence to support that statement?
Selective attention Research shows that people pay more attention to negative issues. Since humans can only focus on one message at a time, due to selective attention, the negative message becomes more profound.
Negative information is more credible than positive information. Since there is a strong normative pressure to say positive things, the person who says something negative is the one who is more likely to seem sincere.
Humans have a very hard time enjoying the positive attributes of an object or event when there is a negative attribute clinging to that same object or event. For example, if an iPhone screen is cracked, then it is a cracked iPhone and no longer a great and fabulous iPhone.
Hamlin et al. researched three-month olds and found that they process negativity just as adults do. This suggests that the negativity bias is instinctual in humans and not a conscious decision.
John Cacioppo showed his participants pictures that he knew would arouse positive feelings, negative feelings, and neutral feelings. He recorded electrical activity in the brain’s cerebral cortex to show the information processing taking place. This demonstration showed that the participants’ electrical activity was stronger towards the negative stimuli compared to the positive or neutral stimuli.
Researchers have found that children and adults have a greater recall of unpleasant memories compared with positive memories. Adults and children can recall the detailed descriptions of unpleasant behaviors compared with positive memories. As humans, we learn faster when we have negative reinforcement.
Most everyone has pleasant experiences with dogs throughout their life; however if someone has one experience with a dog attacking or biting him, then they will most likely be scared of dogs and rely more heavily on the unpleasant experience than the many pleasant experiences.

It is called being organized.

The all programs menu does exactly what it's supposed to. It lists the programs you have installed in alphabetical order and displays their folders correctly. It's the start screen that's a cluttered and annoying mess. I don't need it to wipe my arse and do my taxes, I use it for what it's meant to be used for: to launch applications

Again, then why trample through it? Pin your apps and be done with it... There are multiple ways to access and organize your apps without needing the All Apps menu.

What about the cluster **** of the start screen before you go through and delete all the stupid crap (icons) applications put on there. By default, its a total mess.
Sure you can go through and make order of the mess and make it look pretty
but the start menu didn't have that problem...

You also couldn't customize the menu at all. You're stuck with its default behavior. If you guys install half of the apps you claim you do, how is digging around in a cramped menu 1/10th the size of your screen this epic thing you make it out to be? I abhorred it then, and I abhor it now. Running XP, Vista, and 7, I used a dock. The Start Menu needed to die after we moved away from 1024x768 screens.
You don't call digging around in those folders and subfolders a mess? Please... It'sarchaic to be doing that anymore.
You also couldn't customize the menu at all.

In the Start Menu each program consists of a single sub folder. You then scroll through the alphabetized list to what you want. The All programs list in the Start screen is a cluster ****.
Why do I want to customize it, it works. The fact that you say you have to customize the start screen means that by default it doesn't just work. Well ok, it might work, but without customizing it's a cluster ****.

Nice job showing a start screen with no other programs installed. Install Office 2010, Visual Studio 2010, Visual Studio 2012, Adobe CS5, Adobe CS6. Then come back with a screen shot WITH NO MODIFICATIONS. It is a COMPLETE MESS.
And that is just a small set of programs I install.
