It looks like the "yes" is leading the pack by 69 votes!

 

People will say "Well this is a tech site, we aren't the average user" ... let me tell you,

 

if a large number of technically inclined individuals want it back then the technically challenged DEFIANTLY wants it back.

Not only that, but this place is a sanctuary for Windows 8 apologists; and even here the opinion is 'Yes.'

Running Windows 8.1 I can say that I don't really want the start menu back now. Booting to desktop + start button removed my grievances. The start screen itself is a good idea personally.

In all honestly, I don't want them EVER mess with the desktop again, new interfaces? great if SIDELOADED not forced.

Changed my vote from Yes to No. I do not want the start menu back... Using StartIsGone on Windows 8.1 to remove it.

Exactly. There is no denying (rationally anyway) that a lot of people want it back. I read a rumor on Threshold, the next version of Windows, that MS is considering putting the start button back in.
