I never understood the attachment to the button, but the claims defaulting to Metro are misleading. It displays tiles on the primary monitor, but not the second monitor on each boot. Pressing escape makes them go away. They doesn't come back until I press the Windows key on my keyboard to bring them back. The metro screen is the start menu so many people seem to think disappeared. It searches installed programs, and if the search doesn't find what you want, press escape and all shortcuts will be displayed in the same folder groupings the old start menu used.
