Why Windows 8 Start Menu's Absence is Irrelevant - Why Windows 8 Start Menu's Absence is Irrelevant
Tue, Jul 24 2012 | 9:03AM | Filed under: Operating System| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Although every product deserves healthy criticism, many opinions of Windows 8 seem to be based on misconceptions, especially when it comes to the viability of Metro as a Start menu replacement. For the record, I don't care if you skip the update -- hell, I might pass on it too -- nor do I care if it's the most failtastic operating system in Windows' 26-year history. However, I believe your opinion should be formed by facts, not irrational rhetoric parroted online by so-called power users and companies that want to sell you third-party programs. The truth is, functionally speaking, Metro is basically identical to the Start menu.
