Microsoft watchers Mary Jo Foley and Paul Thurrott talked about this improvement in Windows Weekly, explaining that people close to the development process hinted that the Start Menu wouldn’t arrive sooner than Windows 9.

The old start menu isn't something I'd use or miss, but I'm fine with them bringing it back as long as I can turn it off if I want. Metro apps being able to run windowed and resizable is something I look forward to though.

I've been up and down on my opinions of W8 and the whole Metro/Modern thing, but I do like the traditional Start Menu more than the start screen. I'm a lot more comfortable on W7, but can deal with W8 if I really need to.

Build 10074 - after update Start menu doesn't appear at all Hi there
after an Update to 10074 from 10061 the start menu doesn't appear AT all (on a real machine). Totally non functioning --although Right mouse click works. On a VM it appears but as before you can't launch any desktop app from the menu.
