Usually, if you ask someone why they want the start menu back, and they say it's because the start screen can't do x, and you show them how to do x with the start screen, they will continue to fuss and bitch that they want the start menu back.


Virtually everything is LESS EFFICIENT. It is not irrational to want the familiar (if it works) in the first place. It certainly isn't irrational to be displeased that you are doing the SAME things in a DIFFERENT AND LESS EFFICIENT manner.

Actually, when speaking of the Start screen, it isn't less efficient. It's just different. There's definitely some things they could improve upon, but there's no reason to go back to the old. Even if they decide that Metro wasn't the best course of action, there's still no reason to go back to the old. What's old is based on an API built sometime in the 80's, that is now composed of framework on top of framework, and needs a massive overhaul.
