I don't want just a start button, I want a start menu.. That is just me and what I prefer.. Call me names, I don't care They should have just had both and ease people into Metro.. Let's hope this mouse is good things to come!

there was a video on neowin recently whereby the woman rep from microsoft said Windows 8 was to be the OS for everyone, tablet, laptop and desktop. Problem is, their short sighted-ness has us talking about this issue in the first place. what about wacom tablet users? what about computer manufacturers and CAD-CAM developers? they use mice still
to be the Os for everyone, you HAVE TO BE the OS for everyone.. not got back to add what should have been there, either by option or by default.
as forrest Gump would say, "that's all there is to say about that..."

too many here on neowin have even said "tough.. get used to it." with that thinking is why windows 8 has so many problems.
an example given is the European installation of the browser.. there's a selection screen whereby they can choose what browser to use. This could be done for the start menu people by the installation when it determines your PC.. tablet? then the Modern UI. Laptop with touchscreen? Modern UI. Laptop without touchscreen? Start button with start menu... and so on. not that difficult.
the price you have to pay to be everyone's friend

Yep.. The "tough, get use to it" attitude won't get you far.. People can say what they want.. but the fact it .. the majority of the people would pick Windows 7 over Windows 8 any day. Hopefully Microsoft heard us screaming and will fix their mistake...
With all the different devices out there.. the OS should be tailored to your hardware.. not the other way around.

This isn't a "tough, get used to it" attitude. Truth is, it's *their* OS. They have a defined UX they are building. If you don't want to buy into it, there are other options available. They have no obligation to include each and every little "option" people want.
The Start Menu was obsolete, including it would have required more work, and would have degraded the overall UX.

As a business, your customers are your bread and butter.so to say that, means you don't care about who buys into your product. the start menu is ONLY obsolete to those who are into touchscreens.
as for the required more work for making a start menu, that's non sense. 3rd party vendors have been doing it for.. oh.. since Windows 8 came out.
remember; the Female MS rep said on video they want to be the OS for all.. tablets, laptops and desktops.I think it is great MS is getting it together for those of us who don't have touchscreen systems.
