Give us the Windows 8 Start menu and no one will get hurt

Oh, come on! Are you serious, Microsoft? As late as April 2014, you were promising us the return of the Start menu to Windows 8. But it’s not included in Windows 8.1 Update 2, which we expect to show up in August. In fact, it now looks like you aren’t going to give us a Start menu until Threshold, a.k.a. Windows 9 shows up. That will be sometime next year! And Windows 9 certainly is not Windows 8.

You have got to be kidding me!

Look, Microsoft, I’m willing to acknowledge when you do things right. You’ve finally made the desktop the default interface with Windows 8.1 Update 1 instead of the hot mess that’s Metro/Modern. But come on! We want our freaking Start menu!
