Windows 8.1 will have a start button

I've seen an article on the Verge this morning, about Windows 8.1. It had some screenshots from what is supposed to be the new os. Aaaannnd...the start button is back. Personally, I'm really happy that this will happen. What do you guys think? It's a good thing they brought it back?

Yes, this will be a huge asset to MS.

Finally, this is nothing but good news! The lack of a start button was one of the reasons I didn't like 8 that much. I hope they will bring a lot of improvements too!

Start Button in windows 8 is one of the big reason for not using windows 8 in PC. Its a good addition and will attract more users.

Re: Windows 8.1 will have a start button

It isn't exactly what I would call a start button. Compared to 7 or XP.

Re: Windows 8.1 will have a start button

Folks, this "start button" only switches you between the Metro interface and the desktop interface, and was only put there as a sop to us whiners. THAT'S IT. In Windows 7, the "start button" brought up the Start Menu, which Windows 8x doesn't. You have to load up a third-party application to get that functionality. The only saving grace I can see is that Windows 8.1 allows booting straight into the desktop. For systems without touch, the Metro interface is useless.

R-clicking the start button is handy. Control Panel, Programs and Features, Shut down etc...
