    At the BUILD conference Microsoft has announced they'll be bringing back the start menu in a future Windows 8.1 update! My guess for when it'll be released, probably the fall.

    Great news!

    Modern UI apps window-mode
    Start menu is back

    The only thing left to do -- an option to disable modern UI start screen:).

    Which is what this mode will probably do - give people the choice! :D
