To me they are equivilent statements. I do not have a favourable or a unfavourable opinion of the Win8 start menu. I don't care. The point is that it's gone. I can't do anything about it for you, you complaining doesn't do anything about it for you, and discussing it here on C9 clearly isn't doing anything about it for you.
That's what I mean when I say "the start menu is gone, get over it".
