    Rumor that Microsoft may bring back the Start button.
    Maybe the voice of the consumer has finally been heard?

    If so, thank God I say. I’ve tried it….I HATE it. If this is true, maybe I’ll give it another shake.

    The start button may come back, but apparently it will not have the functionality of a traditional start menu. I have bumped back down to Windows 7 in my main laptop for now due to having installed a solid state hard drive (I love it !) last week. I have Windows 8 on the huge hard drive that came with this laptop and depending on my mood, I can throw that in when desired. Really, the solution is the FREE Classic Shell. No reason to complain about Windows 8 as it is when programs such as Classic Shell are available and install in a minute or so. Besides, Classic shell is much, much more configurable than any start menu that Microsoft ever had. I also run Classic shell on this Windows 7 installation.

    Solid State Drives are awesome aren’t they? I got my first to build a media center. For me the boot time is the most amazing part. I’m getting something like 2-3 seconds from pushing the power button to having a usable XBMC.

    The thing about Windows (or Mac OS) is that the reviews are basically useless since the OS comes with the computer. Microsoft can design Windows however they want and it won’t matter because the vast majority of people who buy a new computer will simply use whatever OS it comes with. Sorry for the rant. I’m glad stuff like classic shell are around for knowledgeable users.
