Microsoft: don't they ever learn?
11

I'm testing the Windows 10 Technical Preview - as many are here - and I've just downloaded the latest build. They've hidden the start menu!

It's easy to get it back: create a DWORD key HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\EnableXamlStartMenu of value zero (in regedit).

But don't they learn?  There were two primary reason people didn't like W8.  I say "didn't", as Windows 8 is more or less history already.  Those reasons:

  • They removed the start menu
  • They tried to force people to use the metro-style interface

With Windows 10 they said yes, we've got it, start menu back and you don't have to use metro-style apps or interface.  And now they're trying to get rid of the start menu.  Again.

I despair of Microsoft.
