If you right click the The Windows icon and the bottom left of your desktop in Windows 8.1, you get something like a "start menu". If you are expecting a more Windows 7 like "Start Menu", then you will either have to use a 3rd party tool (I recommend ViStart, which is pretty good and free), or wait somewhat longer. I have heard that M$ is intending to bring back the traditional Start menu, but that hasn't been scheduled with last update yet.

No, MS did not. They will, but not with update 1.

No, it isn't included in that update yet. It should come later. That update has changed some other things within Windows 8.1 that make it a little more usable for PC's than the previous Windows 8.x. For example, the default as far as I know is that it starts up to the desktop, and not the start screen. But that is something you probably won't notice as you are likely to have changed that setting yourself already. Another difference is that now file associations are set to default to real software, and not the apps crap. It also adds a Power button Link on the start screen, and a search button, so you can use the mouse more intuitively.
