AI is cool and all, but I do believe that Satya Nadella may need to tone down his excitement over it a bit. There are still a lot of old school needs such as a functional task bar and start menu mechanics that are needed rather then just moving towards AI ones.
Copilot may be very useful to some people in some professions but for the average Joe it is more of a novelty feature and in no way will be used as much as a traditional start menu.
It may not matter however, Microsoft has been out of touch with its approach for the start menu the entirety of Windows 11 now. I have pretty much grown accustomed to just using Start 11 to fill the void. Neil did have a clever plug in for that
