I think the start screen is better
than the start menu of previous editions. You can customise it the same as before, you have more space to put everything you want, in groups that are logical, that have live tiles if you want them. If you put the desktop tile at top left then hit return when it first comes up and you are in the desktop. Pressing the Windows key from that point on toggles you between desktop and start screen. Overall, less keystrokes and less mouse clicks than with the previous menu once you have customised it the way you want it.
