That's the funniest part. Hardly anyone actually used the start menu that much before Win8, which was the entire reason it was removed. Microsoft replaced it with something better that fits in with current design trends.
You shouldn't leave something in an OS just because it's already there. Can anyone say "circular reasoning"?

And all that bcos some crappy little thing had still a metro app as default or my computer thought I was doing a "magic gesture" while in reality I was just hovering my mouse around trying to decide what to play next.
It's not really fair to expect Microsoft to cater to people with 19 monitors in Eyefinity. People with setups like yours make up an infinitesimal segment of the PC market.
Metro works fine on systems with multiple monitors - you're only experiencing a problem because rather than multiple monitors, you've chosen to have one giant monitor with distracting black bars everywhere.
