Updating now

Now all the haters who moan over the start button and start screen have nothing to hate Windows 8 for now it has a start button and a boot to desktop option. Shame MS has to spoon feed people who can't learn how to do new things

Yeah, just tried it and it does open the start screen. The boot to desktop option is there though.

Anyone that wants to know how to use the boot desktop option (because MS don't make it clear) right click on the task bar, click properties, go to the navigation tab and you will see a tick box with the option to "go to the desktop instead of start when I log in"

MS should of made two OS's one with a desktop/start menu for work and one for touch devices start secreen/no desktop.

Still it is good that ms are taking note to our complaints

It's all very nice saying all this stuff in the video, basically "yeh we kinda started listening to people"...but they didn't showcase the start button at all. It's almost like they were embarrassed and reluctant to show it..

still gonna use classicshell i think, why oh why can't they just offer it as an optional "theme" or something?

my gripe is that it is more aesthetically pleasing having a button there rather than a blank plain bar.
