Where does it say "upgraded" licenses? All the OP says is that they've sold 4M licenses.

Windows 8 works fine.
I don't miss the start menu. To be honest, when MS switched from the fly-out menus (XP) to the way it works in 7, I found it to be a PITA anyway and rarely used it.
If you want something readily available either add an icon, or pin it as a quick launch in the task bar.
If you don't want a lot of icons on your desktop, get Stardock's Fences and hide them.
There are lots of options to make the desktop look and do whatever you want. It's no different than tweaking any OS the way you want.
I am rather ambivalent to Win 8. On one hand it does not really do more for me than Win 7, but on the other hand, having it (and learning how it works) allows me to help other people who get it and run into problems. Spending $15 to be able to help people is a good investment in my book.
My 2 cents.
