Missing the Windows 8 start button - waiting for windows 8.1?

Among the many new features will be added in Windows 8.1 will be the appearance of a Start Button ('orb'). This single news has bought smiles to many a Windows 8 users, who were missing the Window Start Button and Menu. The button features the redesigned, monochrome Windows logo, rather than the now-old-school multicolored orb, and when you mouse over it, it reportedly changes color to let you know that it's good for something.

However, even on Windows 8, when you take your mouse cursor to the bottom left corner and click on it , you get to see the Start Screen. Click again and you are sent back to the desktop. Yes the standard  windows menu - the whole point of having that start button ('orb')

The Windows 8.1 start button does just that and nothing more really. Click on it and you get to see the start Screen. Click again and you are sent back to the desktop. As an additional feature, Microsoft will also be adding an All Apps view which will appear when the Start Button is activated.
 the All Apps view will now be configurable so that users can group their icons by category, usage etc, which makes it the closest thing Windows 8 users will get to a Windows 7–style Start Menu, even if it is still a full-screen view.

I would love to hear your comments.....
