[Softpedia] The Start Button in Windows 8 Is Gone for Good - Page 5

post #41 of 381
Let the majority stick to 7. People don't realize that the new metro full screen start page (after customizing) actually let you find your stuff faster.

you know, instead of just saying we arent going to buy WIndows 8 just because of the lack of one feature (where it has others that ARE improved over previous OS's) why dont we TELL MS that the start button/menu NEEDS to be there. start a petition or something.
Stardock Software has already shown that where there is a will, there is a way (start8)
It would seriously take MS all of 5 minutes to recode all of that back into the OS........

unless theres a true reason for me to upgrade, I am sticking with Windows 7.

fancy coloured tiles on metro UI = high on shrooms = puke fest = boycott = back to 7

Doesn't bother me at all, I usually tweak my desktop where the task bar is non existent ..soooo... no loss here.

With that said, I'll only be getting it if I find enough of a reason to up(/side?)grade

Don't use the full screen apps? As far as I'm aware, the desktop versions all work. Here are the list of applications that I have open on my proof of concept work machine at all times:
SQL Server Management Studio and Visual Studio
Oracle sqldeveloper and Jdeveloper
Remote desktop management and VMware workstation
Various PuTTy sessions and text editors
Various browsers not named IE
Various programs that my company develops

All of these programs play well with the desktop behind Metro. Then again, I'm using Windows Server 8 beta, might be different from the consumer versions. It would be dumb if they force you to use full screen at all times.

It seemed rather obvious that this was coming. I hope they let us download a Start button add-on or something at least. If not, I see a very likely chance of myself migrating to Linux.
