Weekend Poll: Would you like to disable the Start Screen on desktop PCs?

Before the Windows 8 Consumer Preview launched we asked you whether you would, if you could, disable the Windows 8 Start Screen, return the use of the Start Menu and go straight to the desktop. Interestingly, before using it properly 32% of you voted that you would like to disable it permanently, with a further 22% saying you would prefer to use the Start Menu and Desktop (while keeping the Start Screen for occasional use).

As far as we can tell there is no way to put back the Start Menu into Windows 8, disappointing more than 50% of you that voted you would prefer to use it. Today we’re putting this poll back to you after using the Consumer Preview and a more final version of the Start Screen, but in a bit more specific fashion.

This time we ask if you would like the option to disable the Start Screen on the desktop (as in, not for touchscreen-based devices) version of Windows 8. A lot of you we’re guessing have tried the Consumer Preview and as far as the comments in the forum go, many have passionate opinions on the Metro Start Screen for desktop users.

Place your votes in the poll below and discuss away in the comments. Have a great weekend everyone!
