It's not just the Start menu, it's the entire operating system.
Metro is Windows 8 and the future of Windows, and it's not going anywhere.
Anyone who simply cannot accept Metro will either have to stay with Windows 7 forever or abandon Windows completely.
Sure, there might be Start menu replacements, but Metro will remain.
Look at Office 15, it's Metro. Google is making a Metro browser. Windows 8 server? Metro.
The writing is on the wall.
