Start Menu to return in Windows Blue (Windows 8.1)?

I was reading a rumours page about Windows "Blue" update which will have the return of the start menu, do you think this is true? If I do see the return of the start menu I will considering upgrading to Windows 8, but I can't see it returning, I think Microsoft have decided there won't be a start menu again. Opinions?

It would probably bring the Start Menu back and not just that there are reports about the company bringing the Boot to desktop option with the update which will allow the users t directly boot to the desktop mode in Windows 8.

I don't even know why they remove it. That Start Menu (button included) was a symbol of Windows and they should bring it back. And I don't think I'm the only one who thinks this...

I see what Microsoft was trying to do but it certainly doesn't work out for Laptops and Desktops. For tablets, there is no need for a start menu but Microsoft hasn't thought about the majority of the devices. I'd love to see the Start Menu back and the Metro interface removed.

Even if they do not include the Start Menu back with the Windows Blue update,we already have many third party alternatives which does the work,like Pokki and Start 8 app which brings back the start menu to Windows 8.

It's much better though to have something that is supported by Windows, rather than a 3rd party software. Although I like alternatives like vistart, it's just not the same as having the default windows start bar. Even if you could enable the start bar that would be great.
