The start button got a lot of attention. You just don't care for it, mostly it seems because you didn't give it a chance.
The massive cascading menus of the old system really was clunky. Even when navigating via mouse, I much prefer the new system with a single list. If you don't, that's acceptable, but it's an opinion only, and Microsoft gave you a way to stick with the old style if you have that opinion. So, no room for complaints on that.
Organization... hasn't changed beyond the "styling" into a single list instead of cascading menus.
The real kicker here, though, is the other improvements to the start button. As others have pointed out, as much as I prefer the new menu interface... I hardly ever use it. The search box makes launching applications SOOO much easier and quicker.
