Time for a new SKU from Microsoft, they do love the confusing array of SKU's.
Windows 8.2 Classic Coke version , with no TIFKAM and just a start button ( and by that I mean the traditional Start Menu ).
It's what the people want. Give them the choice at boot time/ install. IT'll please desktop and enterprise users and make the critics vanish overnight.
Doesn't bother me as I've Android on my phone, OS X on my laptop and Ubuntu on the desktop , but to be quite honest I'm frustrated with the MS attitude of thinking they know better than the customer. Choice is great, mandatory enforcement and restriction just tarnishes the brand and Microsoft right now can't buy good publicity. ( Win 8, Win Pho, XBox One etc ).
Ballmer needs to start throwing more than chairs.
