But with windows 8 for the first time microsoft's actions represent their intention to phase out the "windows" desktop and phase in metro. Many desktop users feel forsakened.


Right, which is why I said that this was more than just about the start menu. But you didn't seem to agree with me ;) I think it's the fact that they removed it is what pisses people off more than actually not having it. It's like a 3yo who starts crying when you take away his toy. He just wants his toy back, even if he wasn't really playing with it before you took it and/or he has another one just like it in his toy box. It's more about the fact that you took it away, vs whatever tangible benefits it might've had.
