Born in Windows 95, died Windows 8. We here at InfoWorld have been asking and begging Microsoft to restore the Start menu functionality in Windows 8. You know that. Here are two things you might not know. First, the Start menu was originally designed to replace Program Manager, with the Start hierarchical menu structure hailed as vastly superior to the unnestable icons in Program Manager. Second, both Brad Chase and Brad Silverberg were involved in convincing Mick Jagger to let Microsoft use “Start Me Up” for the Windows 95 launch. Perhaps Mick could chime in on this one? Keith? Ronnie? Charlie? I’m looking for some backup here!
