    Well, guess I'm in the minority here but I like and use the Start Button/Menu alot. Its convenient , compact, and in alphabetical order. (something that appeals to my borderline OCD )
    I agree with you about the start menu, which is why I use classic shell on my 8.1 installation.

    For me, the lack of start menu is more than a nuisance. I can't just pin my software to the taskbar. I have 50+ software installed. I use about 20-25 of them regularly. Some would say to use toolbars but I don't like how they look. They were fine in Vista and older but starting from Windows 7, it starts to clash with the OS design quite a bit. I also LOVE being to pin to the Start Menu. That's actually quite handy. If I need a seldomly used software, just press the button and start typing its name or look through the neatly organized drawer that is the Start Menu. I'm also one that doen't really like using Windows' keyboard shortcuts; CTRL+C, CTRL+V, CTRL+Z, CTRL+SHIFT+N are the only shortcuts I find myself using often. So, bottom line, I find myself hooked the start menu in more ways than one too: most of the time, I also use it to get the Control Panel, PC properties and "Manage" (Computer).

    And I also agree with indianacarnie.

    The 8.1 Update 1 probably is going to add in the Cortana AI most likely. It'll be on Xbox One as well, but the time frame for that happening is up in the air since it's all unknown. But since that update coincides with Windows Phone 8.1, it either means that feature is being added along with some tweaks or WinRT code is going to be more tightened up between platforms.
