If Microsoft had simply offered a "classic" option so users could have a the start menu and also boot directly into the desktop then they would have avoided a lot of problems and all the negative press they got in the lead up to the release of Win 8.

They were stubborn though and tried to force people into it, even with the Win 8 Betas when people found registry hacks to make it go directly into the desktop and/or disable other Metro interface stuff they purposely disabled that in later versions. Likewise during the Betas the rise of third-party applications for the start menu started to pop up like wild fire, that should have been a good indication to them that they were on the wrong path.
