    As things stand now, I will simply continue to use the Classic Shell start menu replacement...
    Like that is a big surprise. . .
    Some like change and others like to use a consistent tool/product. And I don't see anything wrong with that but we here about this all the time and it does get a bit old, IMO.. but YMMV as usual.

    Give it a month and I see this all changing again

    Start Menu for the desktop, and bigger Start Menu on the desktop for touch

    Goodbye to the Start Screen as we know it now

    You can count me out if they do that. I'll stick with 8.1. I don't need or want a Start Menu.

    I do a lot of photo/video editing (and gaming) so desktop view is very natural to use, however for my social stuff, browsing mags, Netflix, etc., Metro offers a lot of nice venues.

    So, I like both, however I am not at all happy about the Windows 10 start Menu so a third party application is my choice.

    I still don't understand why they brought another tiled menu into the mix, the start screen is optimum for tiles, and all they needed to do was add a Windows 7 menu. I just don't follow Microsoft's logic.
    Ditto.

    It doesn't take a genius to work out what's need in Windows 10 - Windows 8 with Windows 7 Start Menu or Windows 8 with Stardock Start8.

    Personally, I'll probably stick with Windows 7 but find Windows 8 with Start8 a good compromise. However, I don't like the increased security restrictions with Windows 8/10.

    Same for me, if both the menu styles are desktop based then count me out also

    The changes to Onedrive have killed off a lot of my enthusiasm for getting 10, change the Start Screen to be desktop based and the chances of me getting 10 will be slim

    Looks like I am not the only one that will stay with the 8.1 screen. I really do not like this new menu. But those who like both, you can toggle.

    And they will have to keep the screen because the menu is unfit for tablets and phones.

    Yeah, but if they do ditch the Start Screen for touch devices we might see this hideous thing!

    (Continuum in full screen on desktop)albeit half baked so far))

    I hope they are not serious with that. Must be a spammers mock-up.

    I don't know if it's gonna come to pass, but that's not a mock up, that's WTP Start Menu in 'Continuum' Mode on my desktop!
    (can't remember how to switch it, I'm over on W8.1 right now)
