    Bring back the Start menu

    3 Ways Microsoft Can Save Windows 8

    Perhaps the biggest gripe users have with Windows 8 is that the Start menu no longer exists after a 17-year run on the Windows ecosystem. When something's been around longer than most teenagers, it's only natural for users to associate the Windows experience with the Start menu. Take that experience away, and it's easy to see why millions yearn for the past.

    Still, this outcry hasn't been enough for Microsoft to break down and give users exactly what they want. According to The Verge, Microsoft's upcoming Windows version 8.1 will be splitting the difference with users by giving them a Start button that routes back to the "Metro" interface. In other words, users still demanding a familiar Start menu experience will be sorely disappointed.

    From Steve Heller

    [I don't have a problem with Windows 8 except for the absence of the Start Menu. Windows 8 is fine for mobility but desktop users need the Start Menu. ..]
