1. Was the Start Menu removed to repair some sort of problem with the operating system?
2. What was the problem?
3. Does Microsoft give some sort of reason why the Start Menu is a bad thing.
The only thing I can think of is the Start Menu doesn't have that Toys R Us look.
1. No. The Start Menu was merely removed because Windows 8 was written to be compatible with touch screens and tablet computers, and move away from traditional desktop PC's.
2. There's no problem with the Start Menu/Button per se,
it's more the move to tablets/touch screens, as I said in #1.
3. See this article: Why Were the Start Button & Start Menu Removed in Windows 8?
