The start button would be completely unnecessary in 8 with so many faster easier ways to access what you want. Getting rid of it only clears up clutter on my taskbar and makes working easier. It's like people who try to revert all the way back to a 98se style start on something as late as 7. To stubborn to accept changes that make life easier foolish indeed.
What could be easier than tapping one button to access all your stuff... And just to top that off it displays it all fullscreen and as large easily identifiable and completely customizable tiles.
I voted no. Thinking about it. The only thing I regularly use the start menu for in W7 is to shut the machine down and with Shawn's power cascading menu on the desktop right click I don't even need that.
I think people are misunderstanding the question.
It is not "if the start button was there , would you use it "
The question is - "should it be returned".
The answer from any reasonable person would be Yes, because tho I may not use it - there are plenty of others who will - therefore give them the option.
