Well it's clear that Microsoft are cruel, nasty and selfish by removing the start menu. And also by removing the means to put it back. Maybe that's why they removed the start orb because maybe it had some source code to bring back the start menu. I and other Windows users have spent money with Microsoft buying installation CDs of Windows and upgrades and product keys. We have been good customers and this is how they treat us. It's clear Microsoft are taking the mickey out of use Windows users doing what they have done.They have blocked all means of putting the start menu back in Windows 8 CP. And they don't care about their customers,they don't care that millions of people won't be able to use a computer any more if they make Windows 8 like this. As most people only know how to use Windows anyway. But not this way,with the Metro theme and no start menu. Microsoft have also violated out human rights by taking away our start menu and trying to force something on us we do not want. I think it is time for us to go to our Presidents or Prime Minister and the European Court Of Human Rights. Hopefully they will be sympathetic. And the inventor who invented that horrible Metro theme.And took the start menu away, will be given a life sentence in prison. Or sent to prison for a long time. And we will get an operating system that we can use with a start menu. And we might even get Windows 2000,Windows XP and Windows Vista back on sale in the shops along with Windows 7. Andrea Borman.
