>>Why do you need a Start Button?
That seems to be Microsoft’s attitude in a nutshell.
“We don’t care if you want it. And while you’re wasting your breath explaining to us why you think you need it, that’ll give us time to work on changing your mind to the new thinkspeak method.”

"Chaitanya Sareen, principal program manager at Microsoft, told U.K. computer publication PC Pro that data indicated a decrease in the use of the Start button. Citing "telemetry" obtained by the Microsoft Customer Experience Improvement Program, Sareen said the company found more users relying on the Windows taskbar for pinning and accessing their favorite software instead of going through the Start menu."

I realize that I can still "Pin" all my favorite programs to the Metro GUI and then click the little down arrow on the bottom left to access all my other programs through the "Start" menu - or even easier I can just type Notepad and hit enter...
There is no difference in Business vs Home use when it comes to the new Metro GUI. It's a "I can't handle change" problem... Believe me, I rolled out Win 7 to a large segment of our 40k+ employee company and the wailing was over-the-top at first, but once they touched it everyone wanted it. Now all the other business segments are using political connections to be next in line. Yes, the move to Win 8 will be just like the move to Win 7, just like the move from Win 2k to Win XP was.
