    I'm not surprised at all. But I wonder if you can take the 4,500 votes for the start screen as a majority wanting/needing it in Win10. I know that there are people who do need it but I would want to see it(start screen) as an option in addition to the new start menu.

    IMO I think MS should give us a choice between the start screen and start menu. If MS had given us a choice in 8, it would have been better accepted.

    If that had happen we would not be looking at Windows 10 for a few more years.

    With the start menu the way it is Microsoft might as well abandoned the attempt to bring it back,
    There are no real options putting icons on it makes no sense,
    Welding Bing search default on it really makes no sense :/
    All we/ I have ever asked for were options to change the freaky defaults I don't believe that's an unreasonable request ?

    That 4500 vote are amongst a technical few that have downloaded and installed the preview, thus giving them the privilege to "vote". If the voting were open to all users, not just these technical few, I'm pretty sure it would be a very different result.

    I did not open it Softpedia did. 4500 votes is only .3% of windows 10 testers not a very big vote.

    Hi

    I haven't changed my mind, I much prefer the traditional start menu with it's improvements for Windows 10 to the very inefficient Metro screen.

    How inefficient it is depends on how you use your computer, (I ended up with over 400 icons!) but for me is was a pain.

    I installed Classic Shell and ignored it.

    I especially like having the right click options on the new Start Button.

    I haven't had any desire to install Classic Shell in Windows 10 and I use it the way it was designed, (with the exception of adding Rocketdock which I've used on every OS I've used for many years).

    I don't see why they couldn't offer the Metro screen for those who want it.
    It will obviously still be the interface on touch screens.

    But I'm happy to never see it again on a PC.

    Mike
