Thus the official countdown begins for Windows 7. IMO Microsoft really needs to get their version of the Start Menu back for Windows 8.1.  I already use an add-on one but there are several different versions out there and that makes life harder in some cases for software developers.  An official Start Menu would force the add-ons to make their products compatible with it.  I believe it would also speed up acceptance of Windows 8.1, especially among seniors.  A couple of days ago I saw a video demo of Microsoft's vision for the menu seemed to combine the best of the tiles with a traditional start menu.  It looked really promising.
