Provide an option using the installation or in the control panel to choose between the start menu or start screen. Keeping everybody happy. Windows 95 did this and eventually people switched to the new Ul and the older Ul was no longer needed so it was removed from Windows XP SP2. :)

I find it quite hilarious how sensitive Windows 8 fans are.

Question: Why do they care? Aren't they aware most of us are just pushing their buttons?

Lighten up, Windows 8 lovers. ;)

Decent suggestion, OP.

You have to select custom setup (vs. typical, portable, etc) to get to the User Interface to select either program manager or explorer.

You could do it after Win9x install by changing system.ini line "shell=Progman.exe"

I never knew that option was in Windows 95. Neat :D

Don't know, guess some members are pushing the buttons way to hard.

No, more like some members rush to defend windows 8 against any little bit of criticism thrown at it. It's worse than Mactards.

You could say the same about Windows 8 Haters. Why hate something you're not using or even plan to use. And most windows 8 haters just flame over windows 8 because they can.

I'd like both sides to stop, Im fine with people expressing their opinions about it, it's a little annoying having 500 separate threads with people saying "I don't like the start screen, I wish the start menu was back". But thats their opinion and they're entitled to it. It's funny when people try and put their opinion across as fact.

It's gotten as bad as the people who are still clinging onto XP when the date for support end draws closer, who get up in arms when programs began to stop supporting it. At least those have died down though, I expect them to resurface nearer to the final end date though.

I get what you mean but unfortunately most the criticisms are not constructed very well. :/

You know, it's kinda funny how the Windows 8 fanatics call the ones who don't like it "Windows 8 Haters", but doesn't that also make themselves "Windows 7 Haters"?
How is one better than the other?

What is there not to like about windows 8? I was very critical of it then i realized the start screen is exactly like the start menu, and start button is still really there but hidden, and it can run programs all the way back to the 1990s. I think the start screen is much more sophisticated and organized, and windows 8's new flat gui is much nicer too. What MS should do is add the ability to boot to dos :woot:

I like all versions Windows, so no.
Also I am just providing a suggestion that would keep everyone happy.
