Who said it doesn't?

The claim is that features were removed from the Windows 8 "Start Menu" and that something needs to be added back to get a better experience. So if you are going to do a fair comparison, then you need to compare the live tiles screen of Windows 8 to only that lame "pinned section of the Windows 7 Start Menu" as AndyC calls it. And if you are going to expand what the Windows 7 Start Menu is to "everything that shows up in that rectangle that appears when you click the Start button", then you need to compare that to "everything that shows up full screen after you click the little Start Screen thumbnail that shows up when you hover your mouse over the lower left hot corner" in Windows 8.
