If you are going to install a 3rd party start button then just stick with 7..

Just so you know, there is a "start" button in Windows 8.1, no need for 3rd party apps really. To me, they've added enough legacy options to make Windows 8 easily adoptable. You can make the start screen go to the "Apps" view directly, which is effectively the start menu your used to, but in full screen format. The fastest is and always will be hitting the WinKey and typing a few letters of the program your looking for though.

I surely wouldn't buy a license of Windows 7 at this point in time.

if you are running a laptop win8; no question. Windows 8 is far superior to windows 7 for hibernation modes and sleeping modes.
