I like change so I've googled around a lot of articles about the lack of a start button. You basically have to learn two keyboard shortcuts and everything is fine. The other thing people don't like is multiple clicks to shutdown your machine. Once I found out that Microsoft reckons most laptops, desktops and tablets have a sleep mode and they thought "We'll just let the computer do that" I stopped worrying.
I had a colleague once who used to spend a day on every new version of windows making it look and work just like Win95. Whats the point?
