Any help would be appreciated.
Try moving the taskbar to the top of the screen by doing this (this will make the start menu come down from the top of your screen which is slightly similar to the way linux does its menu: Taskbar - Move Location on Desktop Screen
Also, if you don't like the start menu that is in Windows 7, you may want to replace it and the taskbar etc with classic shell: Welcome to Classic Shell
