"All Programs" List View as per Win 7 versus Metro view

Just wondering if Win 8.1 somehow made available a "all programs" list view (as per win 7 start) versus the highly undesirable Metro all programs view ? Can't find any evidence of it ?
Is there a way to boot into desktop view directly (as opposed to metro view) yet ?
Or am I going to have to buy Start8 still ?

Also, is there a "what's new in Win 8.1" somewhere ?

Here is a video I made showing how to boot directly to the desktop in Windows 8.1.[video=youtube;8D12kNxXLws]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8D12kNxXLws[/video]

Here is a whole playlist of both Windows 8 and 8.1 videos.

If you have 8 you can get ex7forW8 and it removes unsightly Metro Screens completely, but you have to be careful when using it. Wont work for 8.1
