Why Windows 8 Start Menu's Absence is Irrelevant

As "controversial" as the removal of the start menu in Windows 8 has been, this editorial will no doubt spark a debate.

For the record, I don't care if you skip the update -- hell, I might pass on it too -- nor do I care if it's the most failtastic operating system in Windows' 26-year history. However, I believe your opinion should be formed by facts, not irrational rhetoric parroted online by so-called power users and companies that want to sell you third-party programs. The truth is, functionally speaking, Metro is basically identical to the Start menu.
