As an early adopter, I really do appreciate the return of the start menu
I love my Windows 8.1 (and WP 8.1 dev), but I think that it it very smart of MS to change the start menus for all of the winy B!*ches that keep crying about how Windows 8 sucks. However, I have always said that Windows 8, and he metro screen is not an enterprise product, and MS was stupid for not giving a real start menu option for 8 Pro.
guess i'm not gonna replace my windows 7 for a decade
I am so unsure why Microsoft keeps doing this. Well, I guess we do know why...to pump out a new OS often since that'll mean them "revolutionizing"....something. I'm pretty sure it's not though. The changes just seem to be going backwards. They make a new move and then people complain and they'll add it into the next iteration. It's awful.
I'm liking 8.1 Pro. My PC boots to the desktop in seconds. I won't lie though, i would love to see the traditional start button return.
LIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I like the look of 8, with everything being flat, but the lack of a start button was really a killer. My cousin has it installed and even he isnt used to it. I believe in windows 9.
The reason I think it's fake is because of the the Windows 8 start button, but than again that could be because they haven't yet made a new logo since it's an early version. I hope it's real, because It looks like a combination of the good parts of both Windows 7 and 8.
