    I'll tell you what sold me on the new start menu with 10. First the right click on the start button. You can get to just about anything control panel wise etc. I love that. Secondly, although there is some hate for it, I personally enjoy the start window. The start section of the old menu was fine, but as I age I find I like my icons larger. Personal taste to be sure, but I think Microsoft did a righteous job with that start window.

    What I don't like though is the way the core start menu works. You have to scroll entirely too much. Now I will say for people with zero computer experience, having the little letters there to know where you are might be an okay idea. However, most of us understand alphabetical order. Way too much movement to hunt down your apps. There's a reason the folder paradigm in the older start menu made so much sense. It's called organization.

    Even though the Windows 10 start menu is not 100% to my liking it's close enough that I won't be using any 3rd party start menus.

    I can only assume certain people find it difficult to accept what the majority wish for and find acceptable.
    Change for some is like letting go of a comfort blanket perhaps.
    So now the Insider Program represents the majority of W10 users? That's delusional, a vocal minority possibly but hardly a majority.

    This all boils down to what a users preference is, no more no less.

    Last count, MS claimed 57 Million installs of Win10 -- and that probably does not include all the Insiders because those folks already had Win10 installed. So even if ALL the Insiders voted FOR the new Start Menu (and I know not ALL of them did because I wouldn't vote for it), that still only means 5 Million insiders (I think that was the last count -- someone correct this if I'm wrong) -- which doesn't amount to even 10% of the current installed base of Win10. So, there's no way the Insiders are a Majority of Win10 users.

    What the Insiders program represented was a very small Minority of Win7/8/8.1 users that wanted to participate in pre-release testing of a new Windows OS. Strongly interested in Win10 -- yes. Strongly opinionated about Win10 -- yes. Majority of Win10 users -- prior to release, yes; after release, no.

    I'm sticking with Classic Shell. The Win10 start menu looks too cluttered to me.

    Call me 'old fashioned' but for $5 what can be wrong with Stardock Start10 - it gives the best of both worlds.

    I much appreciate that feature as well , a big + . I know "control panel" like the back of my hand and like to paste "control panel" on the main start page .

    Somehow i managed to do that by going into settings.
