Rumor: The Full Start Menu Might Be Coming Back to Windows 8, Too. The evolution of Windows 8 seems to be "everything old is new again". I like a lot about Windows 8; but, the Metro interface isn't one of them. I actually don't know anyone who uses it. In my family, I have purchased a couple of Windows notebooks for family members, and have watched while they go right to the classic Windows desktop. I install Start8 for them, and they have their old Start button back, and happily compute away. After the Windows RT debacle, Microsoft must certainly realize that they need to provide classic interface options if they hope to succeed. Sometimes resistance to change is a good thing.
